Reality of AI and Machine Learning
This presentation will allow you to see behind the headlines and look at the development of AI, where it is today and a glimpse into the future. We hope to inspire all our users to think about how AI can be applied in the most effective manner.
Panel: Thought Leadership - AI & Machine Learning and the revolutionary effect on the Investment community
AI and machine learning have disrupted the investment landscape at a pace we have never seen before and will undoubtedly revolutionize the industry- and those who fail to adopt it will fall behind. Improved decision-making, optimized operational efficiencies and enhanced deal sourcing are only a few benefits that await firms who are quick to adopt AI/ML tools and platforms, enabling them to capitalize on new opportunities, and ultimately, generate higher returns for their investors. Questions, however, remain around portfolio disruption, data privacy issues, and ethical concerns. Our panel will analyse, debate and unpack this new and exciting part of the investment landscape.
- What is the impact of generative AI and what are the potentials and pitfalls to be aware of?
- How will artificial intelligence transform deal sourcing and due diligence?
- What do advances in AI mean for the internal operations of firms?
- What does the current trajectory for AL/ ML mean for investors as we head into 2024?

Panel: Thought Leadership - Fundraising: The art and science of investor relations from LP and GP perspectives
After years of ever-increasing fund sizes and capital raising, 2023 has landed with a bump. Even the most established managers are struggling to gain the traction that used to come to them with relative ease, and rumblings of extended timelines for fundraising, smaller fund sizes than previous vintages, and LPs sitting on unfunded commitments has meant that effective investor relations has never been more critical. Our panel will examine this topic from the GP and LP perspective and explore how to navigate this increasingly competitive market.
- What do investors really want to hear from an investment pitch, and how has this changed from previous years?
