Private Equity Investing in Asia (Live Webinar)



Private equity capital not only provides long-term equity capital to young and growing companies which often do not have the necessary financial earnings to borrow from banks, but also lends support to those that aspire to be global firms. In particular, through partnerships with private equity investors, companies can acquire the ESG discipline that is a requisite in future fund raising exercises as the companies grow.

In the 2018 Asset and Wealth Management Activities Survey released by the SFC, private equity and venture capital accounted for 5% of the $16.1billion asset management and fund advisory business in Hong Kong. Private equity-backed assets have consistently been able to outperform public equities.
