The Australian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (AVCAL) has appointed accountancy firm Crowe Horwath to provide private equity training to its members.
Crowe Horwath was selected to provide 'foundation level' private equity education to its members.
The Crowe Horwath corporate finance team will be the event series partner of AVCAL's Private Equity 101 professional development course for an initial period of two years.
AVCAL chief executive officer Yasser El-Ansary said the course would allow “the next generation of leaders to acquire the skills they need to succeed, while at the same time helping to foster strong networks that will continue throughout their career”.
“We have worked with the Crowe Horwath Corporate Finance team for some time, and we know they have the depth of experience and skills to deliver significant value to members of our industry going through the PE101 program,” Mr El-Ansary said.
“The AVCAL and Crowe Horwath relationship will be a true partnership as much of the training provided by Crowe Horwath will be carried out with the active involvement of a number of private equity and venture capital fund managers, who will share their first-hand investment experience with course participants.”
