Private Finance vs. Public Finance:
Latest Developments and the Impact of the Internet
***PLEASE LOG IN BEFORE PURCHASING TICKETS***
The Penn & Wharton Club of Arizona and Turnaround Management Association present Professor David Musto, Finance Chair at The Wharton School.
Join us for an engaging discussion with Dr. David Musto, who will be speaking about the latest developments in the private and public financial markets. Dr. Musto will discuss the JOBS act and how this has helped private companies raise equity and also ease the path to the public markets. He will also discuss the major impact the Internet has had on the financial markets (e.g. crowdfunding, peer to peer lending) and how companies have been evaluating the decision to go public or stay private.
David K. Musto is the Ronald O. Perelman Professor in Finance and Chair of the Finance Department at the Wharton School, where he has been on the faculty since 1995. He has a B.A. from Yale University and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, and between college and graduate school he worked for Roll and Ross Asset Management in Culver City, CA. Most of his work, both theoretical and empirical, is in the area of consumer financial services, mutual funds and consumer credit in particular. He has also published work on corporate and political voting, option pricing, short selling, and cross-border taxation.
[With this March event, we are dropping the new ticketing component, which, in beta, has caused many issues interfacing with our current website platform. That means, while Wharton’s web vendor creates ticketing that works, we are stuck, for the moment, with using the only ticketing available to us. We ask your indulgence, and know that you can reach out to webmaster@pennclubAZ.org with any questions or issues.
When registering, IMPORTANT: only use the +1 feature if you are bringing a guest. We know it is unclear, and woefully ill-conceived, but we have no way of fixing it. If you are bringing guests, use +1 or +2. Because we like to prepare name-tags, we will likely contact you so that we can add your guest[s] name[s] to our Attendee list . . . or, if you really want to be helpful, after registering, please email the name[s] to webmaster@pennclubAZ.org.
Note also that our Red & Blue members are entitled to one ticket at NO CHARGE. You may wonder why it's listed below at $.50; it's a long story, but fits fine with the lengthy explanation above, and it's the only way we can include that level in the ticketing module available to us [consider it a donation to the cause]. If you feel uncomfortable charging $.50 to your credit card, please email the GLOBAL CLUBS TEAM, and they will be happy to keep track of our Red & Blue attendees.
Again, our apologies for the challenges with the website this year; we are told it’s the cost of progress, and that the final result will be worth it.]
