Finding viable investments in volatile times

20-21 July 2016 l Four Seasons Hotel, Singapore

Uncertainty in the stock markets and political instability around the world mean PE investors, especially in the emerging markets, may take a more cautious approach than in recent years. However, challenging macro conditions can translate into opportunity for savvy investors.

Despite the turbulence, Southeast Asia has the right fundamentals to be a prime market for private equity investors. With its youthful demographics, rapid economic growth, urbanisation and emerging middle class, the region's growth story is compelling and the allocations should increase over time.
