Nearly 50 attendees joined the Institute for Private Capital and our host, Peter Cornelius, at the offices of AlpInvest Partners in NYC on April 21. Professor David Robinson (Duke University / PERC Researcher / NBER) discussed his newest research on evaluating portfolio investment strategies before Professor Bob Harris (University of Virginia / PERC Researcher) discussed how investment committee expertise impacts portfolio composition and returns. A lively panel discussion followed, covering middle-market partnerships and succession issues. We are extremely grateful to Peter Cornelius and AlpInvest Partners for hosting and we look forward to this event next year. Please contact Jessica Amato ( for additional information.
