The AVCJ Forum is the leading private equity and venture capital event in Asia. For 28 consecutive years, the AVCJ Forum has been the chosen platform where private equity's leading figures share their views on the Global and Asian market, debate their predictions and set the trends that shape the future of investments in the industry. Attended by a thousand senior delegates, the AVCJ Forum is the center of a weeklong ecosystem of investor meetings, VIP dinners and other high-level networking events that are supported by the biggest and most influential firms in the alternative assets industry.
These are important times for the private equity industry. General partners are becoming a more important and influential force in the global markets. With the diversification into other classes of the alternative space, private equity firms are cornering the market for private market investing by offering companies customized solutions for their financing needs. Traditional private equity firms have also upped their game with a renewed focus on operational value-add. Also back on the top are venture capitalists as they fuel the skyrocketing of the technology company valuations. Meanwhile, the Limited Partners community is also evolving with many positioning themselves as co-investment partners and branching out into direct investments while others continue to play the passive traditional LP role.
The AVCJ Forum will discuss all of the above and more. Don't miss the opportunity to keep abreast of all the crucial changes and developments in private equity and take part in the high level discussions that will create the outlook for the industry's future.
