  • The Asia Private Equity Forum (APEF), a major industry event with a global footprint, is organized annually by the Hong Kong Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (HKVCA), Asia’s oldest and largest private equity industry association. APEF 2018, as in previous years, will form part of the Hong Kong Government’s international financial week, which includes the Asian Financial Forum to be held on the 15th and 16th of January, 2018 and will be held at the same venue.

    APEF 2018 will feature more than 80 speakers and panelists representing limited partners, investors, advisors and consultants. Leading industry practitioners will address key issues facing investors in Asia’s high-performing private markets, including those of China, India, Southeast Asia, Japan and Korea. Discussions will cover such topics as co-investments, fundraising and investor relations, private debt, private equity real estate, secondaries, value creation and venture capital.

    As many as 700 persons attended APEF 2017, more than half of whom were partners and C-suite executives. And with the dynamism that continues to be a hallmark of the industry, it is expected APEF 2018 will attract an even greater audience. Speakers from the limited partner sector will include leading figures from Asia Alternatives, CPPIB, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, Public Officials Benefit Association of Korea, and The Church Pension Fund. General partner professionals representing Advent International, Bain Capital, Baring Private Equity Asia, Blackstone, KKR and Morgan Stanley, as well as advisor from APAC Advisors; First Bridge Strategy and Shearman & Sterling will also be speaking.
