12th China Private Equity Summit Proves a Great Success

The HKVCA’s 12th China Private Equity Summit was held on June 11 2013 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. This year’s Summit proved to be our most successful to date, with more than 360 industry, entrepreneurial and governmental leaders attending from around the world. This represented the highest attendance ever for the Summit and we are especially pleased to have been able to provide attendees with a valuable forum at which to discuss the latest developments, trends and opportunities available in China’s private equity and venture capital markets.

Among the issues discussed by the various panels at the Summit were the perspectives of offshore managers with respect to the current environment and the continuing challenges achieving exits; the views of domestic managers as to exit strategies in light of the challenges facing the A-share IPO environment; the latest developments in China’s capital markets; the continuing changes in China’s regulatory regime; and Chinese overseas investments.

The Summit also featured a number of high profile keynote speakers. The opening keynote speech, which looked at PE investment from the perspective of sovereign wealth funds, was delivered by Dr Linbo He, Managing Director and Head of the Private Equity Investment Department at China Investment Corporation. Julia Leung, SBS, JP, Under Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau of the Hong Kong SAR Government, and Weihua Rong, Director, Business Promotion Division, Authority of Qianhai Shenzen-HK Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone, delivered keynote speeches at the luncheon highlighting the opportunities for PE and VC growth in the Mainland and the development of Qianhai as a major global financial centre by the year 2020. Closing keynotes were delivered by Dr Qiwei Chen, Founding Partner of ABC Capital China and Chairman of the Private Equity Association of Shanghai, who discussed the role of PE and VC in China’s evolving economy; and Xiqun Yi, Executive Vice Chairman of the China Association of Private Equity, who provided a review of the outlook for PE and VC investment in China.

On behalf of the HKVCA, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to each of our keynote speakers, event speakers and panelists for their invaluable contributions to the success of the event.

We would also like to thank our sponsors who helped make this year’s summit possible: Gold sponsors: Morrison & Foerster and PricewaterhouseCoopers; Silver Sponsors: Blackpeak Group, InvestHK and Lunar Capital; Cocktail Sponsor: Shearman & Sterling.

The HKVCA will as always continue its efforts to promote Hong Kong as a global centre for venture capital and private equity and to develop the city's role as the primary hub for cross-border networking, the exchange of ideas and deals, the creation of alliances and partnerships while always maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. We look forward to organizing our next China Private Equity Summit in 2014.




Date: 11 June 2013
Location: N101, Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (New Wing)
Time: 9:00 - 17:30

In the last few years, we have seen a boom in the domestic private equity/venture capital industry in China, followed by a sharp decline in 2012, in terms of the amount of funds raised, investments and divestments. Is the downturn cyclical, or are we seeing structural changes in the industry? How do PE/VC firms position themselves amid the changes?

Closer to Hong Kong, Qianhai is being developed as an experimental zone to spearhead financial reform, particularly in cross-border capital flows. A set of provisional measures on the establishment of private equity investment enterprises involving foreign capital has been promulgated. How do practitioners in Hong Kong take advantage of the Qianhai opportunity?
