Thank you for attending the AVCJ Singapore Forum 2014!

17-18 July 2014 l Four Seasons Hotel, Singapore

More than 230 participants from the private equity industry congregated in Singapore for the annual AVCJ forum discuss the latest PE and VC trends and opportunities in Asia. 

Attendees came from 18 countries and heard from 45 of the most experienced and successful PE investors in Asia, as well as from leading outside investors, noted economists and venture capitalists.

The conference featured sessions covering topics such as the current state of the industry and prediction for the coming year, how real assets are playing an increasingly important role for LPs, understanding how VC has helped successful startups go from opening to exit, finding the next wave of opportunities in Southeast Asia whilst deal flow is strong and what influence the new Indian government will have on the country's economic outlook and the knock-on effect for PE.

Highlights of the Forum included:

  • A presentation examining how long-term economic growth can be achieved in Asia from David Carbon, Chief Economist, DBS Bank
  • A keynote Asia panel reviewing the markets and sectors that GPs and their investors are most bullish about featuring The Blackstone Group, United Overseas Bank and Advantage Partners
  • An intimate discussion with four of Southeast Asia's most experienced PE investors on the lessons they have learnt during their investment journey through the rewarding and often unpredictable markets of Asia
  • An interactive session where country experts from Myanmar, Philippines and Vietnam delivered a pitch and fielded questions before the audience voted on the market that would win their investment
  • 2 panel discussions focused on the evolution and growth of the VC industry in Singapore featuring Sequoia Capital, Jungle Ventures, Catcha Group, Northstar Silicon Island and Red Dot Ventures
