Future of Consumer Investing: Fashion, Apparel and More
Glynna Christian, Moderator | June 13, 11:00 - 11:45 a.m.
Fashion has always been at the forefront of innovation — from the invention of the sewing machine to the rise of e-commerce. However, supply chain disruptions and rising commodity prices have created challenges in the past few years, not to mention the rise of e-commerce and evolving consumer behaviors. This panel will explore what's next for fashion and other consumer products and the outlook for investors, including the growing number of merger and acquisition (M&A) deals, how supply chain disruptions are altering every corner of the industry and what to expect next.
Unlocking Opportunities in Women's Healthcare
Morgan Ivey, Speaker | June 13, 11:00 - 11:45 a.m.
One half of the population are women, and they account for 80 percent of consumer purchasing decisions in the healthcare industry. Yet, remarkably, women's health has been considered a niche market and a mere subset of healthcare. That is changing as women's healthcare is a new and growing area of interest. This panel will examine a number of topics related to women's healthcare, including private equity acquisitions, the wave of consolidation, founder perspectives and key legal and regulatory considerations for stakeholders.
Hunting for Deals in Disrupted Supply Chains
Rebecca Wilsker, Moderator | June 13, 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Some of the best investors know that on the other side of an obstacle, there can be a golden opportunity for solving the problem and generating profits. In response to the current supply chain crisis, private equity firms have made a series of notable investments to boost their exposure to the global logistics, agriculture and e-commerce sectors. Venture capitalists are filling the gap for digital solutions, real estate investors are developing warehouses and cold storage facilities and infrastructure investors are reinventing ports and cities. This conversation will discuss innovation in supply chains from multiple angles.
Destigmatized: The Future of Behavioral Health Investing
Ashleigh VanLandingham, Moderator | June 13, 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
The stigma long associated with mental and behavioral health problems diminished significantly over the past decade, while understanding of the seriousness of such illnesses increased still further as the physical and social isolation created by the COVID-19 pandemic led to a surge in cases. Private equity is paying increasing attention to the mental and behavioral health space. This panel will explore the key problems private equity is hoping to address and the challenges for investors in the space.
