AVCJ Private Equity Forum Japan 2024

The Conrad, Tokyo and online

Japan has emerged as the latest hotspot for private equity, as geopolitical risks and weak return outlooks reduce the attractiveness of other markets. In stark contrast favourable monetary policies, government initiatives, market and regulatory reforms, and availability of debt are creating a perfect environment for dealmakers but to complete the journey, the industry need to take some final critical steps to ensure it can deliver long-term.

The world’s leading Japan focused private markets forum - AVCJ Private Equity Forum Japan, unrivalled as the most influential gathering of institutional investors, once again will convene an ecosystem that has been two decades in the making so you can have full access to the most compelling industry gathering in 2024 from an investment and fundraising perspective.

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, 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. 

Megumi Kiyozuka, President & Representative Director, CLSA CAPITAL PARTNERS JAPAN KK
