An exclusive summit for leading mid-market private equity firms and the 18th M&A mid-market forum was held in Milan, Italy

Over 180 Oaklins M&A professionals from around the world traveled to Milan to attend our first and exclusive event Private Equity Portfolio — Providing Expansion & Returns (PEPPER) and the 18th M&A Mid-Market Forum (MMF).

The first PEPPER event

Oaklins always strives to serve its clients better through offering greater global coverage and industry expertise. With this aim in mind, an exclusive summit with some of the leading mid-market private equity firms was held as part of the Oaklins Fall Conference. H.I.G, Riverside and many others shared their portfolios, plans and prospects with our members.

The 18th M&A Mid-Market Forum (MMF)

The first MMF was held in Rome, and for the second time in its history it was hosted in Milan, attracting over 180 M&A advisors from more than 35 countries who met with over 150 clients. The MMF is part of the Oaklins Fall Conference and is specifically designed to advise clients on progressing their M&A strategy and to discuss and generate business opportunities through a series of pre-arranged private meetings. More than 400 one-to-one private meetings were held between clients from industry and private equity and Oaklins professionals from around the globe. The meetings considered clients’ specific geographical and sector interests.

Mr. Attilio Arietti, Managing Partner at Oaklins Arietti, said: “We are happy to host the MMF in Italy for the third time and proud that the MMF was first launched in Rome in 2001. Since then the event has toured the capitals of the world with increasing success. We hope all participants had an enjoyable and productive experience.”
