Capvent's 3rd Biennial China-India-Brazil Private Equity Manager Summit

Partner Event Promotion:

Following the success of our first two Emerging Market GP events in Shanghai, PRC (Sep 2007) and Goa, India (Apr 2009), we at Capvent invite select fund managers from China, India, Brazil and other Emerging Markets to attend our Summit, a 3rd in the series.

The Summit provides a unique platform for practitioners to develop their networks, forge new business relationships, and identify investment opportunities for their portfolio companies. It will also leverage Capvent’s insights and deep networks in the region, to bring together at one place the best minds in the business, to discuss, understand and explore these synergies through a professional network similar to their own.


3 days of interesting deliberations by leading practitioners in Emerging Markets on the way forward for Private Equity, especially in the Emerging Markets. It will also include 2 nights of networking cocktails and dinner to develop networks and new business relationships.

Key topics to be discussed include:

· The Future of Private Equity in Emerging Markets

Leading fund managers will share their thoughts and experiences on the path of collaboration between businesses in the 3 countries, the probable risk and the role of private equity as a bellwether of capital for Sino-Indian and global competitiveness.

· Round Table Discussions on Various Sectors

Several industries in the Emerging Markets are growing at a very healthy pace, holding significant potential for the future as well.

Food & Agribusiness: The food processing industry in India and China is the world’s largest in terms of production, consumption, export and growth. The region accounts for over 40% of the global population.

Education: With a large and growing population, demand for educational services has grown exponentially with government support lagging. As such, the private sector has an opportunity to tap the education sector as secondary and tertiary enrollment rates grow.

Information & Communication Technologies: China and India are likely to become the world’s two largest economies by mid-century. Although India has underperformed China over the last decade, there is a strong possibility that India will close the gap.

Clean Technology: Emerging Markets are poised to become market leaders in the development of clean technologies with large government support. Having said this, what are the risks for private equity investors in this sector?

Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare: Increased healthcare coverage in Emerging Markets has been largely driven by government subsidies and increased economic accessibility by the general public. International pharmaceutical companies are looking for new sources of revenues and expanding aggressively through M&A transactions.

Consumption-driven business models: Brand building is an integral part of consumption-driven economies. While brand building is different in different parts of the world, it is also perceived differently across the Emerging Markets and the developed countries.

· Limited Partner Perspectives

Hear from LPs on their views on transparency, allocation and return expectations; the flexibility of GPs vs. LP demands; how to earn LP trust and build a long and sustainable relationship; and whether LP expectations are reasonable.

· Planning your Fundraising Activities

In today’s challenging fundraising environment, how should fund managers better position themselves? Hear from the panel on various aspects dealing with this challenge including perspectives on the fundraising environment over the coming months, competing for capital, key skills being looked for in fund managers operating in Emerging Markets etc.
