AVCJ Private Equity & Venture Forum - Australia & New Zealand

The premier private equity & venture forum in Australia & New Zealand

Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney and Online

The Australian private equity industry withstood the challenges of Covid-19 very well with investments in 2021 exceeding the combined totals for 2019 and 2020 and exit activity returning in Q4 buoyed by a strong IPO and secondary market. However, uncertainty is still present so it will be interesting to see how fund managers and LPs are adapting their investment theses and the outlook for the industry as it reflects on the pandemic and plans for the next wave of activity.

Since 2003, the AVCJ Australia & New Zealand Forum has been a must attend for the leaders of the alternative investments industry in the region. From private equity and venture capital funds, to superannuation funds and family offices, the AVCJ Forum is where the community gather to exchange ideas, catch up with friends and meet their next business partner.

Benefits of attending include:

  • Network: Meet a diverse and powerful group of LPs, GPs and advisors
  • New LPs: Find the established and emerging LPs that are committing capital to alternatives
  • Australia: Discover the latest deal and exit trends at each end of the market
  • Fundraising: Hear from fund managers and advisors that were active in the last 12 months
  • Global view: Discover the key macroeconomic issues for private investors in 2022 and beyond
