Private equity investment and exits both hit record highs in Asia last year, despite an abundance of capital entering the asset class, which has driven up competition and valuations. For leading managers at the top end of the market, staying ahead means increasing product offerings, widening team skillsets, innovative deal sourcing, driving value creation, utilizing technology in portfolio management, and carefully considering exit options. Our panel will share their tips for achieving success.
Asia is not a one-size-fits-all region, and the same can be said for how LPs choose to invest here: fund-of-funds, separately
managed accounts, pan-regional funds, sector and single-country focused managers, co-investment, or direct investment.
Choice of strategy is a function of resources but the key is to have a clearly defined approach and then find the right partners.
Our experts discuss what works and what doesn’t when investing in Asia.
The ideal private equity portfolio can neutralize cyclical factors by virtue of its long horizon and its geographical and vintage
diversification. However, in an Asian context, there are still many questions to be answered. LPs must consider the merits of
developed versus developing markets, assess the impact of macroeconomic unrest, and decide how important ESG is to their
investment decisions, to name but a few. Our panel goes in-depth on portfolio construction.
China is set to become the most important private equity market in the world. While not every investor will need to have China exposure in their portfolio, every one of them will need to understand the real opportunities and note the actual challenges that face local managers. To bridge this knowledge gap, qualified institutional investors attending the 2018 AVCJ Forum this November are invited to this special briefing that will featuring normally shy Chinese private equity leaders giving LPs a never-been-seen glimpse into every nook and cranny that realistically defines the Chinese private equity market.

We will once again be hosting roundtable discussions on issues that are important to the investor community. Each table will
be led by a topic leader who will encourage frank discussion and debate. (Registration is required.) Topics:
There is already evidence of differentiation in Asia’s venture capital industry, whether it involves sector specialization, pursuing
distinct early or late-stage strategies, or teams with local agendas spinning out from international firms. But can this conviction
about an approach to investment and the expectation that it will deliver rich deal flow translate into consistent and meaningful
returns? Investors from across the region share their views on how to build a sustainable industry.
As the private equity industry continues to mature in Asia, there is more differentiation in what GPs are trying to do and LPs
have the information to say with greater certainty what works and what does not. Nevertheless, there is general concern about
the amount of capital being raised and whether it can be deployed efficiently in a climate of high valuations. Our panel of
leading investors discuss the role of Asia in their portfolios.
