Often lambasted as being feckless, self-absorbed and overly-entitled, like it nor not, millennials are the future workforce and wealth source. How then should private equity’s operational leaders approach this seemingly challenging group? Talent management is widely seen as a top priority for the industry – but there is a growing sense that millennial employees and their demands could change the rules of private equity recruitment and firm culture for good. Private equity likes to think of itself as a people’s industry – is it ready for a generational renewal?

Want to be part of this game-changing debate?

We’ve been doing some extensive work with undergraduates to gauge their understanding of the private equity industry. To ensure a fair debate, we want to hear your views on private equity and the next generation. Share your views here, and we will then present our findings in a comparative case study at this breakfast briefing.
