The arrangement will see Crowe Horwath provide foundation-level private equity education for AVCAL members as part of its Private Equity 101 (PE101) professional development course for an initial two-year period.
Peter Gardiner, Findex Global's head of business development, said both Findex and Crowe Horwath are looking forward to working with AVCAL.
“We know the private equity space very well. We are looking forward to working alongside senior fund managers and sharing our insights and skills with new participants into the industry,” Mr Gardiner stated.
Crowe Horwath’s corporate finance team, led by Andrew Fressl and Rahavan Yoganathan, will have prime responsibility for the project.
AVCAL CEO Yasser El-Ansary added that the partnership will allow for the next generation of leaders to acquire the skills they need to succeed, while fostering strong networks throughout their career.
“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,” Mr El-Ansary concluded.
