FT Dealmakers and Dealbreakers will bring together top executives and stakeholders from across Japan's corporate landscape to consider the biggest trends in corporate governance, cross-border dealmaking and private equity. The event will examine the part investors are playing in changing corporate behaviour as well as the growing pressures Japan Inc faces to improve governance standards. It will also probe the changing role of private capital and the lessons learned from a period of intensified overseas dealmaking for domestic companies.
