CVC Capital Partners manages $52 Billion in assets and is one of the world’s leading private equity and investment advisory firms. Founded in 1981, CVC today employs over 420 people throughout Europe, Asia and the US. The firm has historically been one of the largest investors in the chemical industry with former portfolio companies including Univar, Taminco, Evonik, Flint Ink, Materis, and Acordis amongst others.

The presentation will give an overview of the CVC’s investments and overall investment thesis in the current environment. After exiting its remaining positions in Evonik and Univar in 2016, CVC remain invested in ChemicaInvest, a carve-out of four DSM Chemical Assets and its operating units, Aliancys (composite resins) and Fibrant (acrylonitriles).

The renewed focus on manufacturing is generating a new array of opportunities for investors in the businesses of chemistry. Join us to hear the insights of the CVC architect of its US industrials and energy portfolio and his views about the investment outlook and potential changes due to dynamic regulatory environment.
