Thank you for attending the AVCJ Japan Forum 2016

22-23 June 2016 l Conrad, Tokyo

The 17th Annual AVCJ Japan Forum gathered a record attendance of 420 of the industry's leading figures in Tokyo, including over 230 LPs, for two days of thought-provoking discussions, presentations and networking.

Attendees came from 14 different countries and heard from 55 of the most experienced and successful private market investors from and across the globe, as well as the leading pension funds, international fund of funds and domestic and foreign institutional investors. This year's AVCJ Japan Forum saw a continuation of the optimism that we have witnessed in recent years as LP and GP interest in the space increases and new entrants look to commit capital to funds.

The Forum featured a wide range of presentations and panel discussions covering topics including how investors can navigate market and political challenges in 2016 and beyond, how small to mid-market players see the next 12 months, the sectors that have performed particularly well for exits, key points to consider when choosing an infrastructure fund, how PE works with its investee companies to drive value, strategies for mitigating the PE J-Curve, how LPs select the partners and advisors to help them take the first steps into PE investments and the markets and sectors that provide the best opportunities for success across Asia.
