Limited Partners Summit

 

The 29th Annual AVCJ Private Equity & Venture Forum is the largest and most influential gathering of private equity and venture professionals in Asia.

As the world braces for an era of financial chaos and economic volatility, private equity investors are constantly reminded that it is during such down cycles when some of the best investment opportunities present themselves. While the past may or may not choose to repeat itself, there is no time like the present to prepare oneself to take advantage of the opportunities in the future.

As the leading provider of private equity and venture capital intelligence, AVCJ brings a unique perspective to the table. Perspectives that are formed from 29 years of institutional knowledge and unparalleled access to the combined experiences of the leading minds in the industry. These perspectives come to life at the AVCJ Private Equity & Venture Forum, scheduled for November 15-17 in Hong Kong.

The AVCJ Forum brings together over 1,000 of the world's leading GPs, LPs and other professionals for three days of quality discussions, speeches and networking. Often copied but never duplicated, the AVCJ Forum combines editorially driven topics, knowledgeable speakers and superior networking into an annual event that predict trends, hone strategies and create lasting partnerships.
