The leading private equity conference in Taiwan!


Taiwan achieved over 3.3% GDP growth in the first quarter. Domestic investors are anticipating a good year, with a stronger capital market, positive trade balance and more M&A opportunities. In the private equity sector, positive steps have been made via CDIBs cross boarder fund with a Chinese partner to tap into the huge potential in Chinas marketplace. Venture investment is also booming: according to AVCJ Data, there have been over 25 venture deals, composing nearly 35% of the total deal volume.

However, questions remain, will the venture momentum last, how can the private equity market evolve, and whether we will see further cross-strait collaborations.

This year's AVCJ Taiwan returns with 25+ industry leaders, government officials and corporate executives to discuss these pressing issues with you:

  • How competitive is the Taiwanese market for domestic and global investors? What are the popular sectors with the potential to deliver good returns?
  • How is the government improving transparency levels in the deal approval process?
  • As companies are increasingly seeking international expansion, what are the developments in private equity backed M&A transactions locally? What are some of the limitations?
  • What are the opportunities for cross-strait deals in 2015 and beyond?
  • How Taiwan is positioned in LPs' allocation strategies in the region? Will the bullish outlook increase commitments?
