Which Funds Are Getting Raised Now And Why?

1:30 p.m.

This year, the return of Vista Equity Partners and other mega-shops to the fundraising market raises a host of questions. How much oxygen will be left for firms with less lofty targets?

The panel of investors and advisers will discuss where institutional investors are placing their bets this year.
