London, United Kingdom, August 18, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- SuperReturn Asia is delighted to announce an in-depth programme for its 5th annual event. Taking place over 3 days (28th – 30th September) at the JW Marriott Hotel, Hong Kong, SuperReturn Asia 2010 builds on the successes of the 2009 event which attracted 700+ delegates. With structured networking opportunities and presentations from influential LPs and GPs in the market such as Liqun Jin, China Investment Corporation and Antony Leung, Blackstone Group, delegates will learn about the hottest developments and potential issues to consider when investing in Asia.
“A crucial aspect of our conference is the multitude of formal and informal opportunities to meet potential business contacts and strengthen existing relationships,” says Sarah Startup, Conference Director. “At SuperReturn Asia, we believe that a successful conference contains a balance of industry debate, blue sky thinking and business networking.”
With each day individually themed, they’ve designed the programme to allow topic clarity and flow of ideas. Industry outlook is the theme for 28th September, with plenary sessions on economic prediction beyond 2011 and lessons learned from the crisis to focused stream sessions on India, Vietnam, Distressed Assets and a master class in how LPs evaluate new managers. The 29th September focuses on LPs’ needs and perspective, examining the role of private equity in the whole portfolio, how South East Asia fits into allocations, and country specific clinics for Japan, Australia and Indonesia. The closing day, 30th September, sees Private Equity Strategies take centre stage and central to the agenda is the Big Debate on “What is the next hottest market in Asia?”
In parallel summits on 27th September, SuperReturn Asia 2010 examines LP/ GP relations and the special interest market of China. Asking questions like “how is the GP universe changing?” and “what is the appropriate risk adjusted return for Asia in the current climate?”, the LP/ GP summit seeks to clarify how the ILPA guidelines have changed that relationship and how to capture LPs attention for successful fundraising. The China summit focuses on the evolution of the RMB fund market, evaluating investment risks and the ongoing educational programme required for LPs investing in the region.
“For a region that has emerged from the global economic crisis, stronger than ever, SuperReturn Asia 2010 offers us the not to be missed opportunity to gather and exchange ideas, ” says Rebecca Xu, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Asia Alternatives Management. Rebecca will be an expert panelist for the big debate on “The next hottest market in Asia.”
