Preqin Markets in Focus: Private Equity & Venture Capital in Japan’s Transitioning Economy

Japan is a market in economic and structural transition, offering a unique opportunity for private capital investors to play a key role in facilitating the next stages of the country’s growth. Amid significant uncertainty globally, and domestic pressures for improved corporate competitiveness, Japan’s private equity & venture capital (PEVC) industry is well positioned to be a vital source of transformational energy. 

Indeed, international investors have taken note of the potential value to be unlocked. Japan-focused PEVC assets under management have registered average annual growth of 12% since the end of 2010 – hitting a record high at the end of 2019. Despite COVID-19 headwinds, this trend looks set to continue with fundraising activity accelerating in H1 2020 and on track to top previous years.
