The China Private Equity Summit is an HKVCA flagship event, attracting over 550 venture capital and private equity practitioners, leading corporates, and other industry professionals and participants from across the region. It is recognized throughout the industry as the preeminent, “must-attend” practitioners’ conference, and features in-depth discussions and information on the latest developments and trends in the private equity market in China.
2017 was by any measure one of the most active years for new investments and exits in China’s PE/VC industry. We saw many PE/VC backed unicorns accessing both private and public markets to raise US$/RMB billions in funding, and the momentum is expected to continue. At the same time, M&A’s and control deals volumes are at record highs. At the macro level it is fair to say that we are witnessing the emergence of a new era in China. Concrete timetables have been set to achieve specific development goals: to build a “moderately prosperous society” by 2021, and to turn China into a “great modern socialist nation” by the middle of the century. The economy has been transitioning from “a phase of rapid growth” to “a stage of high-quality development”. Growth will be driven by technology and innovation, and will be more inclusive and sustainable.
Against this backdrop, what is in store for the PE/VC industry in this new era? What sort of structural reform can we expect and how will these reforms impact investors’ entry and exit decisions? In what industry sectors should investors be deploying their capital? And, with new policies on regulating overseas investments, what opportunities and challenges are ahead for those engaged in cross-border deals?
