Wharton Private Equity & Venture Capital Alumni Association and Wharton | San Francisco invite you to join your peers in alternative investing for an evening of thought provoking discussions with Jonathan Coslet, Chief Investment Officer, TPG.

Jonathan will offer his detailed perspective on the Macro Outlook for Global Growth for investments, focusing in particular on China, US, and Europe, taking into account key economic metrics, monetary policy, credit, historical performance, current political leadership, social issues, commodities, and findings from a recent LP sentiment survey, set against the backdrop of current volatility. 

We'll delve into the unique social and economic issues each economy faces and which leads to critical questions about their future growth and investment opportunities.  As a limited seating event for peers in alternative investment, it will afford us the opportunity to engage in an interactive discussion about these and other questions at the conclusion of the presentation.

We hope you can join us as we delve into these issues, discuss the outlook, and consider how they will combine to impact the world we invest in during 2016.
