For 19 years the AVCJ Japan Forum has been recognised as the meeting place for the leaders of the alternative investments industry to form long-standing, powerful relationships. It is the must-attend event for industry participants in Japan where the ecosystem comes together once a year to exchange ideas, catch up with friends and meet their next business partner.

Private equity in Japan is booming. The volume of capital deployed by GPs is at the highest levels since the global financial crisis. Fundraising is also making the headlines as a range of institutional investors, pension funds and regional banks turn their attention to the asset class. Discover the opportunities for your organisation at the longest running and biggest industry event in Japan, and join the biggest global GPs, domestic managers and a broad group of LPs that are looking to source new partners so they can construct a diversified portfolio.
