Japan update: Sustaining momentum

Could Japanese private equity emerge relatively unscathed from a downturn? Investors point to a mature and predictable economy, a flight to safety as capital looks for targets beyond emerging markets like China, tried and tested investment theses, and robust structural trends around corporate divestment. This doesn’t mean it will be easy – not least because certain sectors have struggled in recent years, exit timelines are being extended, and deal financing is harder to secure.

  • How has the pace of investment changed in different market segments?
  • What can GPs do to capture growth in Japan while being mindful of risk?
  • Is there enough creativity in terms of exit planning?
  • What progress is being made on ESG measurement and reporting?
