China: Revitalising the private equity market
After a difficult period resulting from IPO lockdown and an economic slowdown, the Chinese private equity market is finally experiencing an upturn and a bullish return looks likely. With the lift of restrictive policies, investors are more confident and are expecting improvements in deal activity, fundraising and exits over the next 12 months. But growth is always accompanied with challenges. Quality deals are rare and valuations are high, liquidity pressure is still prevalent and the IPO exit channel, despite now being available is over subscribed. This means, that GPs and LPs in China have to seek out quality partners, diversify investment strategies and embrace innovation, in order to succeed in this ever-changing market.
Join the debate at this year's AVCJ China Private Equity and Venture Forum and hear from leading LPs and GPs on topics including differentiation strategies, effective value creation, the Shanghai Free Trade Zone, early stage investments, SOE restructuring, a checklist for successful buyout deals and more.
