On the 17th of May 2018, nearly 250 private equity (PE), venture capital (VC), and experts from advisory firms convened at Shangri-La Singapore to share interesting insights. Six expert panels gathered and shared their thoughts on a wide range of topics including Southeast Asian opportunities, value creation models, exits, round B financings, future technologies, and rounded off the discussion with expectations of limited partners. 

The Conference included keynote speeches by John Tang of GIC, and Steve Melhuish of PropertyGuru who shared his entrepreneurial journey. Chris Elvin of Preqin also gave an update of PE/VC in Asia and beyond.

SVCA released its inaugural report titled “Southeast Asia PE & VC: Investment Activity” . The report details investment activity within Southeast Asia (SEA) for 2017 and highlights the fact that Asia as a region has surpassed Europe in PE/VC investments.
