Back by popular demand, the Fundraising & LP/GP Relations summit puts the relationship between LPs, their GPs and the private equity asset class as a whole in the spotlight.
Portfolio construction 2020
Get the update on LP portfolio construction with a view to the future. How are LPs allocating to Chinese private equity, and how does it fit into a wider Asian or Global allocation?
LP appetite for private equity
With past return correlations between fund size and generation in China, we ask our panel of experts whether they think the conditions are right for this to be replicated. What are their return expectations for the 2018 vintage targeting Chinese private equity? And are LPs overpaying for fund exposure?
Get the hard data from Preqin on capital raising for USD and RMB funds in the last year. What strategies have been attracting investor capital and what keeps fund managers awake at night?
Due diligence, transparency and the LP/GP relationship
With transparency at the top of the agenda for private equity managers across the world, we ask what LPs are willing to accept during the due diligence process and where the line falls when assessing a China fund.
We always ask GPs who have spun out to start their own fund why they choose to do so. What are the benefits and do they miss anything from being part of a more established platform? Well, now is your chance to find out. Three managers get 5 minutes each to present on this, followed by moderated discussion and audience Q&A.
Working with Chinese investors
With the investor base in China constantly evolving, we ask investors across the scale from institutions to family offices what they think about private equity. Who are the new breed of investors and what opportunities will they be seeking in the asset class? Are these the right partners and sources of capital for every GP to work with?
Investing for impact in China
Impact investment remains a hot topic for many LPs. What is being offered for that strategy targeting China? What sectors are ripe to create positive social or environmental impact and what cannot be invested in?
Co-investment and disintermediation
Co-investment is seen as desirable and in some cases necessary from many in the LP community. But how do GPs feel about this? What does the ideal co-investment partner look like from their perspective? And are LPs pursuing these transactions solely to drive down fees?
Ultimately, is disintermediation an conceivable end game and what capabilities do LPs need to for this?
Alternative models to the LP/GP relationship
What drives the exploration of models other than a blind pool fund? What solutions can be devised to deliver the right economics, returns, and discretionary oversight for all partners?
