The Future of Dealmaking: how to leverage on AI and technology to save time, costs, mitigate risks and seal the deal

With Stephanie Siu, APAC Project Manager and Legal Counsel at eBrevia DFIN

In an era of data overload, how do we make investment decisions and track portfolios in a fast, capital efficient manner, even as we minimise risk? This session seeks to answer these questions.

According to the 2020 Global Private Equity Survey by EY, there is an increasing trend for PE firms to deploy technologies to support the investment process. The report also points to the necessity and relevance of deploying AI in obtaining limited partner commitments, closing investment opportunities and providing value across the organisation.

Stephanie Siu, APAC Manager and Legal Counsel at eBrevia, DFIN – an AI contract analytics company will discuss
1. How AI technology can be leveraged in the different stages of a deal: pre-deal to post-acquisition, portfolio management and investor disclosure
2. General market trends in the adoption of AI, and drivers of change  
3. Practical tips on onboarding AI technology

She will be in conversation with Valerie Law, Team Lead – Research, at DealStreetAsia. Prior to joining eBrevia, Stephanie practised as a corporate M&A lawyer in an international law firm.
