26 January, 2024 Asia Private Equity Forum 2024

The Asia Private Equity Forum (APEF) 2024, organized by the Hong Kong Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (HKVCA), was a notable success. Close to 800 delegates, of which more than 65% were investors, attended the conference. The 14th annual edition of the Forum featured some 70 LPs, GPs and other industry professionals, including program leaders, speakers and sponsors. Leading industry practitioners addressed the latest trends driving private markets in Asia, particularly in China, Japan, Korea, India and Southeast Asia, and covered topics relevant to private equity, venture capital, real estate, private credit, investor sentiment and regulation.

Held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the event featured an array of distinguished guests, including: the Honourable Paul Mo-po Chan, GBM, GBS, MH, JP, Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR); Samson Wong, Chief Investment Officer (Private Markets), Hong Kong Monetary Authority; Ming Lu, Executive Chairman, Asia Pacific, KKR; Eric Mason, Managing Director, The Church Pension Fund; and Kent Chen, Managing Director, Neuberger Berman Asia.

Rebecca Xu, Chairwoman of the HKVCA, said: “As the HKVCA’s flagship conference and a key event during Hong Kong’s annual International Financial Week, we are delighted that APEF drew an impressive gathering of esteemed speakers and industry leaders to address the key issues, developments, and trends in private market investing in the region. APEF’s robust attendance demonstrated Asia’s enduring appeal as a prime destination for global investors, and underscored Hong Kong’s strategic preeminence as the gateway to the region’s abundant opportunities.”

25 January, 2024 HKVCA Gala Dinner 2024

The HKVCA was thrilled to host the 2024 Gala Dinner on January 25th at the Hong Kong Club. This highly anticipated event marked the return of this popular event after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

The evening was generously sponsored by Debevoise & Plimpton LLP. Over 150 senior executives and industry leaders gathered to reconnect with fellow colleagues and peers in the private equity and venture capital community. The event provided an invaluable opportunity for networking and socializing following the challenges of the past few years.

A highlight of the evening was the HKVCA ESG Awards ceremony, where the following winners were recognized for their outstanding ESG initiatives:

• Bain Capital and Kerogen (EcoCeres)
• CVC Capital Partners (FineToday)
• Insignia Ventures Partners (Elevarm)
• PAG (AirPower)

Congratulations again to the deserving winners! We look forward to the next ESG Awards in 2025.
