The Conrad, Tokyo and online

The outlook for private equity in Japan is positive. LP appetite for the region remains healthy and despite economic and political challenges GPs armed with convincing value creation plans that are willing to make tough decisions to ensure they are getting in at the right price can achieve the desired return.

See what our delegates said about the AVCJ Japan Forum:

The event was a very fruitful get together with many industry professionals after COVID. I really felt AVCJ came back strongly to Japan this year, and this event is necessary for the Japan market to energize the PE industry.

Shunsuke Tanahashi, Representative Director and President, PARTNERS GROUP JAPAN

AVCJ Japan Forum is "the event" for any professionals that have investment interest in Japan. Every year, hundreds of GPs and LPs around the world gather to exchange ideas, share perspectives and network in order to better invest in Japan.

Tetsuro Onitsuka, Partner and Head of Private Equity Japan, EQT PARTNERS

I was delighted to be a part of AVCJ Japan Forum 2022, which again proved to be one of the most important PE event in Japan in terms of the quality of speakers and participants. The forum provided us with an opportunity to meet industry experts and update what was going on in the domestic and global PE market. I am looking forward to joining the Forum next year.
