Hot topics included the opportunities and challenges that will face PE in the second half of 2024, the best sectors for PE deals, how to capture investor appetite. and what LPs are really looking for.

Marc tells us: “The topic of the pharma patent cliff has become dominant in the last two years. This came out in the panel discussion, reinforced by the long-awaited revolution of digital clinical trials. There was agreement that it is difficult to predict the future of pharma but, typically, periods of disruption provide opportunities for savvy investors.”
