Capturing the booming SPACs market - a primer for Asian GPs and LPs
In the past year, special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”) have raised over $82 billion in capital- more than the last 10 years combined. Whilst the US accounts for the majority of SPACs activity, Asia has been hailed as the next hot spot for takeover targets and de-SPACs. The private equity and venture capital industry has also embraced SPACs as part of their investment toolkits, with the number of PE-sponsored SPACs on the rise in Asia.
Against this compelling backdrop, this webinar aims to provide industry players with an update of the key trends and best practices in SPAC investments, their significance to the PE industry and how managers take advantage of this boom which is taking the investment industry by storm.
