Professional development programs looking to advance the careers of private capital professionals have existed for a while. Aside from not being available in Canada, those programs tend to focus on much more senior individuals within the organization such as partners or those close to partner levels.
Announced in September 2018, the Canadian Private Capital Investment School (CPCIS) is a highly specialized program that will prepare the next generation of private fund professionals in Canada. It’s the first of its kind in the country, specifically designed for junior-level and new entrants into the private capital sector.
The curriculum has been designed to reflect the targeted program participants as well as modern considerations in private capital. Chuck Grace, Program Director, says the intensive program will cover a broad range of topics.
“The program will cover all the way from the future of investing to how do you value a deal. How does deal flow management work? How do I negotiate a deal? What are the legal tax implications, pricing, structuring, managing a board of directors and ethical considerations? We’re covering the whole gambit.”
