Globalscope’s biannual conference in London was a resounding success for all involved

Posted by Clive Percival

Globalscope's  four day conference brought together over 40 partners from 25 of Globalscope’s 31 member firms, meeting at the Ritz Hotel in Piccadilly, London. In addition, it attracted guests from selected larger British business groups and private equity fund managers, all with cross-border M&A ambitions, at a reception held in the offices of international law firm, Hogan Lovells, London EC1.
At the reception, Hogan Lovells presented key findings from the third study in their Evolution series, Evolution: Reigniting the Global Economy. This work, undertaken in conjunction with the Financial Times, surveyed a global cross-section of 240 board members and heads of M&A across a range of sectors. The study examined the corporate strategies business leaders are relying on to build sustainable growth in an increasingly complex, and yet potentially less stagnant, global economy and noted the growing optimism and boardroom confidence in Europe, the United States and Asia. (For more information see www.hoganlovells.com/evolution). During the conference, Globalscope was delighted to welcome two new member firms: Allegiance Capital Corporation ( www.allcapcorp.com) from Texas, USA, and a new European member firm to be announced shortly. Michael Moritz, Globalscope’s president, confirmed the network’s intention to continue expansion with a view to announcing further additions at the next meeting in Cape Town in April 2014. The conference included external speakers representing the British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association, mining and exploration interests in Africa, the transport and logistics sector in the UK as well as a review of business opportunities arising from the Arab Spring, given by the Henry Jackson Society. Michael Moritz, President of Globalscope, commented “The Globalscope London conference was a resounding success for all involved; the networking M&A reception at Hogan Lovells law firm generated leads with buyers, and our partners had numerous openings to further discussions on cross border opportunities. I would like to thank Globalscope’s host member firm, Corbett Keeling, for providing Globalscope with the platform which enabled so many positive meetings.” The next Globalscope conference will be held in Cape Town in April 2014.
