Partner Lorna Chen (Hong Kong-Asset Management), head of the asset management and investment funds practice in Asia, moderated a panel discussion, “Is the Market for Secondaries in Asia about to Take Off?,” at the HKVCA Asia Private Equity Forum in Hong Kong. Lorna and the panelists discussed the main trends in Asia’s secondary markets, as well as opportunities and challenges for secondary players in Asia.
The forum featured more than 80 speakers and panelists comprising limited partners, investors, advisors and consultants. These leading industry practitioners addressed key issues investors encountered in Asia’s leading private markets, including China, India, Southeast Asia, Japan and Korea, as well as subjects such as co-investments, fundraising and investor relations, private debt, private equity real estate, secondaries, value creation and venture capital.
The Asia Private Equity Forum is organized annually by the Hong Kong Venture Capital & Private Equity Association. It forms part of the Hong Kong government’s international financial week, which includes the Asian Financial Forum.
