Private equity has changed hugely from last year, with funds now trying to make a profit in a distressed climate. Gone are leveraged buyouts, auctions and big- ticket exits; funds are instead restructuring, looking for bargains and preparing to deal with new regulation. IFLR's Asia Private Equity Forum 2009 is the only event that brings together the most recognised in- house and private practice figures for one day to consider tactics to deal with failing investments, opportunities to make money, and where to find new pools of capital. The forum is designed to look at how private equity houses can make money and minimise loss, despite the chaos of a recession. While downturns stress investments, they also create great opportunities for bargains. If you intend to succeed in 2010's private equity market, this is your must-attend conference of the year.
