Q2 Quarterly Symposium, Chicago

June 13–14, 2013

The Yale SOM Quarterly Symposium series focuses on addressing critical civic questions from a uniquely Yale and SOM perspective. The facilitated discussion includes invited experts from the private and public sectors who bring real world experience working on these topics. The Q2 event focused on the intersection of capital markets and the public sector. This topic is particularly important here in the Midwest, given the recent decisions by various political leaders to leverage public/private partnerships for public works. Similar to the Q1, the discussion drew a strong group of alumni and leaders in the field to explore this important topic. For Q2, 50 Yale alumni came together with three experts in the field leading the panel: - Hugh Sullivan, Vice Chairman and Midwest Head of Investment Banking, Morgan Stanley (SOM alumnus) - Debra Schwartz, Director - Program Related Investments, Macarthur Foundation (Yale alumnus) - Chris Meister, Executive Director, Illinois Finance Authority The discussion touched on how private capital could best be used in the public sector, and how public and private institutions could operate in partnership to drive impact while also delivering the returns necessary to attract private funds. In addition, a number of important case examples were provided and discussed by the panel. The next Quarterly Case Study will be taking place on September 19th, so please mark your calendars. Additional details coming soon.
