IHS Markit is pleased to host our annual Year-End Conference focused on valuations and year end audit preparation. At this year's Connect: Private Markets, IHS Markit will be partnering with the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), KPMG, Alvarez & Marsal, and other auditors.
This annual event has historically focused on the Venture Capital community, but as more investors are including venture investments and startups in their portfolios we are expanding our attendee base to include our Private Equity peers. With all the macro changes in 2020, we are seeing similar challenges across the alternative investment space. These challenges are affecting business operations, the investment strategies, and valuation processes. Firms have had to be nimble in dealing with teams working remotely, responding to the financial needs of portfolio companies, altering their investment strategies, and expanding portfolio monitoring to maintain investment growth. In addition, 2020 will continue to bring changes with the upcoming November election which could impact industry.
This IHS Markit Conference aims to bring together investment firms, auditors, and industry experts to discuss how the current economic and political climate will affect year end operations for venture capital firms and venture investments. With presenters and speakers from each side of the industry and continent, we hope to help prepare everyone for the unique challenges this year has brought.
