This will brings together senior international and Japanese LPs and GPs to interact and explore the latest trends, investment strategies, challenges and market innovations in private capital investing in Japan.

Where are Japanese LPs putting money to work in Japan and globally? What investment strategies are attracting international capital to Japan? What digital transformations are taking place? What is best practice in ESG and value creation now and in the future?

Join 175+ global attendees, including 50+ LPs and 100+ GPs, to find out what is ahead for Japan’s LPs and GPs.

Join small-group closed-door “Connections” sessions to discuss specific topics on Japanese private capital and get to know like-minded LPs and GPs in an informal setting. Hear what your peers are thinking on the ‘hot button’ issues, run completely confidentially under the Chatham House Rule.

Plus, take part in live Q&A with our expert speakers during the main conference sessions and hold one-to-one meetings with the people who matter to you.

Institutional investors who attend SuperReturn Japan to hear the latest market intelligence, take part in exclusive closed door discussions, develop relationships and share insights with fellow LPs and GPs.

They include insurance companies, regional banks, pension funds and sovereign wealth funds from Japan and across the globe.
