Denver Partner Elizabeth Sipes and Boulder Partner Mark Weakley will present Feb. 13 at The Regulatory Fundamentals Group’s 2018 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles. The conference will focus on the changing role of the investment office and will include discussions on considerations for endowments investing in derivatives, managing the NDA deluge, current issues for LPs and more.
Sipes and Weakley will present on the panel “Does Investment Infrastructure Matter? Direct Investments, Co-Investments and Joint Ventures,” which will explore how these investments affect an endowment’s investment risk profile.
