Arthur Salzer, our CEO, attended The Carlyle Group Investor Conference this past month which was held in Washington, D.C.. Carlyle is one of the most successful private equity firms in the world with assets of over $190 billion and investments in over 200 companies and 250 real estate investments.
This invitation only event had over 900 attendees from sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, and family offices from places such as Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America. The exciting program featured a series of provocative panel discussions on the global investment environment, the Global Energy Outlook, Perspectives from leading Portfolio CEO’s and current events including World Affairs and Washington’s politics.
The highlights this year were the two distinguished guest speakers George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States and Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Alphabet (the conglomerate that controls Google). We received an update on Carlyle’s global investment perspective and a comprehensive review of their portfolio of funds and investing opportunities. Northland Wealth will be bringing our clients access to many of the exciting opportunities and resources that Carlyle has available.
