    Simon Pillar, Managing Director, Pacific Equity Partners on "Rethinking Meaning"

    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused people to rethink the core drivers of their lives. The foundations of wealth, job, financial security and health have been shaken. Will we sound like the Preacher in Ecclesiastes and talk about how all is vanity and meaninglessness? People ask themselves various questions. What is life about? What are my idols? Am I putting my faith in biblical, lasting values? The present situation is an opportunity to reflect on our enduring objectives. What can we learn?

    Simon has a unique and exceptional background in business. PEP is the largest local private equity firm in Australia and New Zealand. Funds managed by PEP have made more than 30 operating company investments, and more than 100 bolt-on acquisitions. PEP VI closed in June 2020 at the hard cap of A$2.5 billion. PEP has also raised a Secure Assets Fund of A$360 million to invest in infrastructure-like assets with contracted base cashflows where it can apply its formula of value addition to deliver mid-teen returns. The firm has approximately A$3.5 billion in assets under management. It is the largest private equity fund manager in Australasia as measured by FUA.
