Thank you!

Thank you for attending the 2016 AVCJ China Forum, which was successfully held in Beijing on March 9-10 and brought together over 360 leading GPs, VCs, LPs and senior executives from the Asian private equity and venture capital community for two days of high-quality discussions, presentations and networking.

More than 50 leading global and domestic private equity and venture capital professionals from across the region including: Gao Xu, Chief Economist, CHINA EVERBRIGHT SECURITIES CO; Stephanie Hui, Head of Merchant Banking Division, Asia Pacific (Ex-Japan), GOLDMAN SACHS; David H. Liu, Global Partner, Co-head of KKR Asia Private Equity, CEO of Greater China, KKR; Sean Lu, Managing Director, THE CARLYLE GROUP; China Head, CARLYLE ASIA GROWTH PARTNERS; David Wei, Chairman and Founding Partner, VISION KNIGHT CAPITAL; Olivia Ouyang, Director, ONTARIO TEACHERS' PENSION PLAN and Patrick Zhong, Senior Managing Director, FOSUN GROUP, shared their thoughts on the entire investment lifecycle, from fundraising through to investment and exits. They offered insights in areas such as return expectations, developing sustainable investment strategies, and identifying and realizing value through a series of keynotes and panel discussions.

The Forum attracted a record-breaking number of investors, with more than 120 LPs and achieved a quality mix of GPs and LPs. Leading LPs that attended included; National Social Security Fund (NSSF), Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), China Investment Corporation, Development Bank of Japan, Khazanah Nasional, LACERA Investment Office, SBI Brunei (Ministry of Finance Brunei), QIC, GIC, China Life Insurance, Ping An, and China Re Asset Management.

This is what our attendees say about the conference:

"The AVCJ China Forum is an influential event in the private equity and venture capital community in China, which brought together industry professionals and thought leaders to discuss the hottest opportunities and explore strategies to tap the ever-changing Chinese PE market. It offered a great platform to meet with LPs across the region."
- David H. Liu, Global Partner, Co-head of KKR Asia Private Equity, CEO of Greater China, KOHLBERG KRAVIS ROBERTS & CO.


"The AVCJ China Forum was a high value gathering, with authoritative and substantive speakers and ample opportunity to network and connect to a serious investment community. It is rare to find some 200 hundred China investment experts and decision makers of such caliber, from across China and broader Asia, under one roof. The market knowledge and future strategic orientation of the companies and individuals present at the 2016 AVCJ China Forum provided greater insight into future directions of the China economy, and anticipated behavior of Chinese consumers going forward, than any recent conference I have attended."
- Ron Hoffmann, Alberta’s Senior Representative for the Asia Pacific Basin


“The AVCJ China Forum is a stage for us to meet, to share and bump ideas, and afterwards to do something big together!”
- Scott Cai, Partner, SAIF Partners
