Paul DiGiacomo, Managing Partner and Head of the Financial Sponsors Group, BDA Partners, said: “Every year our flagship PE Conference has grown, and this year we had a great line-up of companies presenting across the consumer, health, industrial, services and tech sectors.”
“We were also pleased to see some companies and management teams participating again as presenters after having presented at previous conferences. It signals that they find this event to be a worthwhile use of their time. It also is indicative of the growing recognition in Asia that private equity has an important role to play as good owners of high-quality companies over a long term. We are starting to see more companies in Asia successfully transition to their 3rd or 4th private equity owner in a row, a trend which we believe is set to grow.”
“Thank you for the support from all our participants, presenting companies, investors and our colleagues to make this event a great success. We look forward to seeing you all again at the 2023 BDA PE Conference.”

The 2022 Consumer and Retail Investment Forum, hosted by BDA Partners and OC&C Strategy Consultants on 2nd September, was a great success. The Forum focused on Consumer investment opportunities post-COVID. 65 senior executives attended, from multinational corporations, state-owned enterprises, publicly listed companies, and leading private equity firms. They held lively discussions on market trends, outlook and opportunities coming out of COVID.
Since the outbreak of COVID in 2020, the Consumer industry has been dented. Investor confidence has dampened. COVID was a stress-test for enterprises, as well as a touchstone to test the vision and capability of every player in the industry.
Bringing deep combined insights on the Consumer sector, BDA and OC&C co-hosted the in-person gathering in Shanghai. The Forum comprised five sessions, including keynote presentations and panel discussions, illuminating the post-COVID macro environment, industry outlooks, M&A and capital raising opportunities, and ready-to-cook sector trends.

BDA Partners hosted our inaugural China Growth Capital Conference on April 26th – 28th. 20 presenting companies from consumer, health, services and technology sectors gave presentations to growth capital investors in over 200 virtual one-on-one meetings.
Anthony Siu, Partner and Co-Head of Shanghai, said: “Our 3-day virtual conference was a big success. It was BDA’s first growth capital conference and it attracted over 300 investors from 150 PE firms to participate in our conference. The attendees included blue-chip global and China USD funds as well as China RMB funds. We also received strong support from Founders and CEOs of high-growth companies in China to present at our conference. These companies represent industries which are at the forefront of China’s economic development including digital health, in-vitro diagnostics, premium healthcare services, lifestyle & wellness and fintech. The strong turnout reflects investor appetite for high-quality companies set to benefit from China’s rapid transformation toward an advanced economy. It also demonstrates ample private market liquidity seeking mid to late stage opportunities in China. We are very pleased to be the partner of choice for our clients in bringing private capital and exciting growth opportunities together.”
We look forward to our next BDA China Growth Capital Conference in 2023, and also the annual BDA PE Conference in late 2022.
