On Tuesday, April 15, 2014, we return to the Pacific Club for the “Private Equity Rumble.”

Three leading Orange County private equity professionals (or, so they claim) will discuss (or, more likely debate) the virtues of investing in the manufacturing sector vs. the consumer products sector:

  • Where are the best opportunities?
  • How have they had their successes?
  • And if they can’t reach agreement on which is the best industry to deploy capital, our panelists will fight it out in the cage — UFC style (or, perhaps not…)

This panel discussion will be moderated (or, refereed) by William Simpson.
