Friday Letter Seven-year itch

PERE magazine has been publishing for seven years, and we are itching to serve you better. To that end, we are launching a readership survey so you can let us know what you think about our coverage of the industry. Complete it, and you can win an Amazon Kindle for your trouble.

PERE has been in existence since 2005, and it’s been a fruitful and successful seven years. With a view to maturing and growing further, we want to ask you – our readers – what you think of our coverage of the industry so far and, more importantly, what else you would like to see featured across the pages of our magazine.

Your opinion is extremely important to us as we seek to make PERE even better, so we would appreciate you taking the short time needed to complete this survey, which can be accessed here

To ensure your time is well spent, we will enter your details into our survey prize drawing, giving you the chance to win an Amazon Kindle! In addition, we will send each participant a copy of our latest Blueprint Series 2012, featuring eight exclusive interviews with leading industry professionals shaping the asset class.

We would like to assure you that all responses will be treated confidentially, and respondents’ identities will not be revealed or used for any other purpose other than to make sure you are eligible to win our featured prize and receive your copy of the Blueprint Series 2012. The winner of our prize draw will be selected at random at the end of the survey's timeframe and will be notified within 30 days of winning.

Just to give you a flavour of the kind of questions in the survey, we are asking you to rate us in terms of coverage of fundraising, the LP/GP relationship, M&A activity, interviews with senior industry figures, regulation, deals, people moves and industry trends. We also would like to know how you rate certain sections of the magazine, such as the special reports at the front, the news analysis and commentary section, plus our thematic features at the back. In addition, as publishing is a competitive business, we’d like to know who else you turn to for information on private equity real estate.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for tuning into our coverage of your corner of the investing universe. Now, please help us to do it better.

Get clicking on the link above. You will discover it takes only a few minutes to complete the survey, and there is an inducement in the shape of a prize for one lucky participant!
