As the pandemic wreaked chaos in 2020, the private equity industry in Southeast Asia like the rest of the world had to deal with a range of challenges including liquidity issues and rapid strategy and business model changes whilst adapting quickly to the new normal. The private markets industry in the region had to react quickly and adapt. Several sectors understandably were hit harder and will take time to recover, however digital and tech driven businesses are coming out of the crisis even stronger with many of them lining up for IPOs or alternative exit scenarios.

The AVCJ Singapore Forum is unrivalled as the most influential gathering of global institutional investors, regional fund managers and company founders in Southeast Asia since its inception in 2010. This year as the Forum celebrates its 10th anniversary and will bring together industry leaders from sovereign wealth funds, family offices and global and regional funds to debate how the region can capitalize on the growing interest from investors across asset classes.

The high-level editorially driven content, featuring industry leaders speaking on a wide range of important topics, will equip you with the knowledge and strategies to effectively navigate the challenges and capitalize on the opportunities in the next 12 months.

This is a hybrid event.
