The next generation of private equity leaders gathered at an exclusive Mayfair dinner on 27 September to celebrate the very best of the sector’s up-and-coming talent.
To recognise the achievements of those who made our Rising Stars of Private Equity 2022 list, Financial News and sister title Private Equity News hosted a private dinner at 34 Mayfair.
The guests enjoyed a well-earned champagne reception, dinner, and drinks, after making the roster of leading young European buyout professionals.
The list, which was published in July, came amid an exceptionally busy time for private equity deals, coupled with the uncertainty of rising interest rates and soaring inflation, selecting those who stood out from their peers in a tough environment.
Recommendations were gathered from senior executives and our editorial teams vetted achievements from promotions to deal wins and professional impact.
At the event, held in association with law firm Baker McKenzie, Shruti Tripathi Chopra, editor in chief for FN and PEN, said there had “always been a lot of interest and intrigue” around the list — “people read it to see if they’ve made it or their colleagues made it, and pick it up to see which rivals made it”.
Guest speaker Michael Moore, director general of the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association, paid tribute to a sector that backs some two million jobs across the UK, calling on policymakers to do more to dispel common misconceptions.
“The role that I have to play is to address what is still to my mind one of the biggest problems we have, which is the comprehension gap,” he said. “It’s about politicians not really understanding us, and, dare I say it, us not really understanding where the politicians are coming from.”
