Share this article

What are some of the key things to watch out for when building your business in Asia? Watch the sessions taken from SuperReturn Asia Virtual to find out more about how the big firms have become successful and what to watch out for when selecting for managers.  

Our first session with Tracy Ma, COO at Hillhouse Capital, gives us an insight into how the firm established and grew into the big name that it is today in the Asian private equity scene. From the evolution in their operational model to future-proofing the business, find out more about their journey and what we can learn from their story.

Our second session sees our panellists taking a deep dive into manager selection in Asia-Pacific today, and how to strike the balance between working with innovative new funds or existing managers with proven track records.


Fireside chat with Tracy Ma, Hillhouse Capital

Creating and expanding a business in such a highly competitive market is tough enough, without the added challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. How has Hillhouse's model changed over its 15 years and what does the future hold? Tracy Ma, COO at Hillhouse Capital, joined Henny Sender, Chief Correspondent at Financial Times for a fireside chat at SuperReturn Asia Virtual 2020.


Manager selection: a flight to quality or a fear of innovation?

To what extent do LPs need to be more selective when choosing managers in Asia Pacific today? Are new funds hungrier to prove themselves or is it too risky to invest when there is no track record? By investing in the same managers, are LPs hampering innovation and should newer managers get more of a look in?
