Prospering in the New Japan
26-27 June, 2014 l Conrad, Tokyo
Japan's economy has undergone a transformation during the past two years and the country is beginning to be viewed as an attractive investment destination boasting a high-performing stock market, growing exports and a welcomed respite from the risks present in Asia's emerging markets. The news that the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) is looking to diversify its portfolio and invest in private equity is a move that would be a game-changer for both domestic and international GPs looking for new sources of capital and has created global interest in Japanese private equity. However the inability to perform structural changes to the nation's inflexible corporate practices still remains and the jury is out on whether growth will be sustainable and remain for some years to come.
