Asia outlook: Opportunities amid uncertainty

Fundraising by Asia-based private equity managers in on course for its weakest year in nearly a decade. The pace of investment has slowed, IPOs are scarce, and M&A appetite among strategic investors is weak. The region’s role as a global growth engine – and the fundamentals underpinning this – are unchanged, but many LPs are re-evaluating their exposure and how they want to access the market. Our GPs from around Asia explain how they are staying relevant.

  • Does an Asia portfolio without China make sense?
  • How are GPs differentiating themselves from peers?
  • What steps can be taken to improve exits and liquidity?
