Asia spotlight: Relight the fire

Asian private equity endured a difficult 2023, with substantial drop-offs in fundraising, investment, and exits. China, traditionally the region’s largest market, is unappetising or out-of-bounds for many investors amid concerns about geopolitics and weaker economic prospects. It’s not all bad news. India’s growth and scale are viewed as a counterpoint to China, while Japan and Australia appear to be benefiting from a pivot to developed markets. Our panellists discuss where to find the best risk-return.

  • What are the best ways to access Asia’s long-term growth story?
  • Why aren’t there more sector specialist GPs in the region?
  • Is it time to take a contrarian view on China?
