  4. 4. My Comments: Private Equity – It’s Just Like Other Industries! Market veterans can’t believe the exceptional, singular private equity industry is evolving just like other maturing industries. It is Being Disrupted by Innovation! The Largest Players Are Becoming Ever More Dominant! Its Participants Are Using the Internet More and More!Expensive, Luxury Items Are Becoming More Affordable!

  8. 8. Behold the Least Efficient Market in the World: Private Equity Fundraising • Meetings, flights, meetings, flights, meet ings, flights. . . • Cumbersome due diligence process • Myriad data formats • Competing performance benchmarks • Blizzard of different LP requests • Two years to raise a fund, if ever • Getting to “no” takes months Can the internet help?
  9. 9. “No One is Going to Use the Internet For Fundraising Because. . .” • These are long-term, illiquid partnerships, not impulse-purchases • This process is driven by personal relationships and face-to-face interaction • Transactions of this magnitude won’t take place online • Prestige-minded participants would be embarrassed to scout for deals online • No one is going to list their private information on a website
  10. 10. Sounds like: “No One is Going to Use the Internet For Marriage Because. . .” • These are long-term relationships not impulse purchases • This process is driving by personal relationships and face-to-face interaction • Marriages won’t take place online • Prestige-minded daters won’t be caught scouting for mates online • No one is going to list their private information on a website
  11. 11. What Can the LP-GP Market Learn From the Online Dating Market? Online information doesn’t replace personal interaction – it improves early decision-making More and better information up front leads to better dates Don’t get on a plane or book a meeting unless you have spent time with quality information about your potential capital partner
  12. 12. Disruptive Innovations in PE Driven By: Transparency, Standards, Data Tools Will Vastly Change Market “Portable Track Records” Means Talent Can Be Better Verified and Backed New Forms of Capital Formation • Public Markets • Defined Benefit Market • Crowdsourcing • Co-Investment • Separate Accounts New Liquidity Tools
  13. 13. Number-One Driver of Innovation in Private Equity: Popularity Because of its performance and promise, more and more capital, more and more people, will want access to private investments. New technologies, regulations and business practices will facilitate that participation.
