Providing stability for investors in Asian private equity
25-26 June 2015 l Conrad, Tokyo
Early confirmed Limited Partners to speak at the event, include:
There is a feeling that now is a shrewd time to invest in Japan and take advantage of the favourable conditions for private equity. Valuations are low compared with the rest of Asia and strategic buyers and the IPO market are providing an attractive route for exits. There are also signs that corporate Japan is slowly coming around to engaging PE as a potential buyer for non-core assets and recent developments at the GPIF suggest that PE will be under strong consideration for allocations from pension funds in the near future as well as regional banks committing to the asset class right now.
The macro concerns that have been present for many years still remain in terms of low growth and currency depreciation but these are encouraging times for fund managers looking to both raise capital from Japanese LPs and make investments.
Last year the AVCJ Forum attracted over 340 leading Japanese focused PE executives with a record number of 215 investors. Make sure you are at Japan's number one private equity and venture capital gathering this June for two days of thought-provoking discussions, economic briefings, keynote speeches, high-level networking and more.
