avcj-hk-banner-632x127-speakers-f-all

For 27 years, the AVCJ Forum has brought together leading investors from across the globe for three days of high-level dialogue, debate and networking. In a programme that combines strategic and tactical issues, you'll hear from some of the world's most successful deal makers as they share their insights on the opportunities for private equity investors going forward.

"The AVCJ Forum will continue its tradition of offering intellectually stimulating discussions. This year, we will dive deep into some of the most pressing issues Asian private equity currently faces. This will include the creation of a long-term private equity model for Asia; the industry's ever-changing relationship with regulators and how venture capital is coming back in a big way.'' - Allen Lee, Publisher, Asian Venture Capital Journal

This year's Forum is made up of four Summits which are being held between 11, 12 & 13 November 2014 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong.
