Since the Asian financial crisis in 1997, the industry in the Asia Pacific region has, year on year, continued to grow at a rapid pace. This has resulted in a new awareness amongst investors, government authorities, financial institutions and the corporate world that Asian PE is here to stay.

New Funds raised in 2005 look to materially exceed those raised in the record 2004 year. This new firepower promises to compete with corporations for transactions and to provide vendors and corporates with more options in achieving their objectives, be it an outright sale or in raising capital.

Many in the industry here believe that the tremendous successes and prominence of PE overseas can over time be duplicated here. Certainly the growth of the PE business over the past 5 years has generated the momentum to further sustain their growth.

This conference seeks to present the latest trends, issues and strategies within the PE industry as discussed by panellists within the industry. Panellists will cover the three main segments of PE - Venture, Growth and Buyouts. The conference will also allow participants the opportunity to hear what international investors think of the future of the Asian PE.

The conference is suitable for PE service providers, bankers, industry practitioners, entrepreneurs, potential investors, corporate executives and managers.

Program covers:    

Factors which drive growth in PE(Buyout, Development Capital, Venture)

What Institutional Investors think about the future/and the issues when could restrict growth
What keep them up at night

Recent Case studies, Innovative Deals/Exits



Funds raised -where does it go-
Korea, Japan, Australia, may be China
Are returns sustainable?
