A New Era of Growth
27 & 28 June 2013, Conrad Tokyo
AVCJ is proud to present the 14th annual Japan AVCJ Private Equity & Venture Forum, the country’s longest-running and most exclusive alternative asset event.
After more than a decade of stalled growth, Japan’s economy appears to be on the mend thanks to aggressive stimulus measures taken by the newly elected government under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The newly reinvigorated economy is expected to present a myriad of opportunities for the private industry sector, both on the buy-side and on the sell-side. However, economic growth is still at an early stage and convincing LPs that Japan has turned a new corner might still prove challenging after many years of anaemia.
The AVCJ Japan Forum will feature can’t miss analysis of Japan’s PE industry including an in-depth look at how the sector can benefit from the rapidly improving economy. After years of low-growth, has a new era finally dawned?
Topics at the event will include:
- Will government stimulus measures be enough to kick-start the economy? If so, how can PE best capitalise on the growth?
- Can market innovation still translate into market success in Japan?
- How can PE facilitate offshore expansion by Japanese firms?
- What mid-market opportunities exist in the new economy?
- What role should PE have in the corporate sector, and how can the industry expand locally?
