Tim Burroughs, Managing Editor of Asian Venture Capital Journal:
“The private equity industry globally has undergone a significant evolution in the last 30 years, and in the last decade alone we have seen it go from boom to bust and back to boom again. In terms of fundraising, valuation multiples, and leverage levels, there have been times in the last 12 months when market conditions seemed like those in the run-up to the global financial crisis”
“Private equity has entered a new era in the region as global brand-name firms sit alongside a growing collection of new and established managers. With a degree of macroeconomic and political uncertainty also present in Asia, it will be interesting to hear how private equity firms are responding to these changing dynamics”
