Description

Australia boasts a mature, stable and buoyant economy at a time when uncertainty reigns across many destinations that once appeared unshakeable. Yet, for all of the strength in the market, Australia also lacks a clear commitment from domestic LPs and the local industry suffers from a stalled exit environment as the asset class continues to go through a period of consolidation.

The AVCJ Forum will celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2013 and will bring together more than 250 PE leaders from across Australasia and the world to spend three days discussing the current fundraising climate, return expectations of the next deal cycles, and investment opportunities that only the mature Australasian market can provide.

Attendees will have the unrivaled opportunity to hear honest dialogue about this complex and compelling market from the leading GPs on the ground, as well as from some of the biggest domestic and international institutional investors.

Topics at the forum will include:

  • How can Australian GPs create value in the current environment?
  • What have successful funds done to secure commitments from local and global LPs?
  • Exit strategies and methods
  • The rise of PE-backed take-private transactions
  • Which markets and sectors offer the most promising opportunities in Asia for domestic PE firms?
  • How can Australia continue to benefit from its close ties to China?
  • Where do leading VCs see the industry in a decade, and what domestic innovations will be ready for investment?
  • What returns are LPs expecting in the current environment?
