The conference will once again bring together industry leaders to discuss freely and anonymously the increasingly important valuation standards within the private equity industry. Conference participants will include GPs, LPs, auditors, industry association representatives, and industry advisors. The conference will close with a session to discuss conclusions and possible next steps. The proceedings of the conference will be available on this website later in the summer.

June 2005 Valuation Guidelines Survey Results

In June 2005 the Center completed a survey of private equity general partners throughout the US regarding the adoption and implementation of valuation guidelines. Respondents to the Tuck survey represented a broad cross section of GPs with diversity in investment style, fund size, and number of funds under management. Of the 102 respondents nearly 70% were VCs and 25% were buyout funds. This survey followed up on a similar survey by the Center in 2003.

The Hanover Inn

Set among the rolling hills of a classic New England college town, the Hanover Inn's hospitality has been a tradition for more than two centuries. Each guest room is individually decorated in a Colonial motif, with a private bath, cable TV, and air conditioning-and-special touches to help you feel pampered. The scenic countryside surrounding Hanover provides a wealth of recreational opportunities, whatever the season. Championship golf courses, major ski areas, an abundance of tennis courts, clear rivers and lakes-all only minutes away from the Hanover Inn. Hanover Inn guests enjoy the use of many of Dartmouth College's athletic facilities.
