About this event
Over the last decade, private equity has seen massive growth as assets under management (AUM) grew by US$4 trillion - an increase of 170% - and the number of private equity firms has doubled. Driven in part by unicorns - privately held startups reaching a valuation of over US$1 billion - the total AUM of private equity stood at an all-time high of US$6.5 trillion as of the end of last year, according to McKinsey.
Now, with the massive reality of the COVID-19 global pandemic radically reshaping markets, industries and fundamental consumer behaviour, some unicorns must re-engineer their business models entirely while others are poised to reap massive benefits as the new normal fully takes hold.
In this webinar, Vincent Fernando, managing director of the tech-centric corporate finance and investment research firm Zero One, will explore the underlying trends that will impact unicorn investing and the characteristics that will determine winners and losers in the post-COVID-19 world.
- How increased ‘work from-home’ arrangements for the majority will increasingly favor software that enables remote work and access – and the companies that provide them
- How increased health and hygiene consciousness is driving growth for companies specializing in online transactions and digital/ contactless payments (including online shopping, online fitness activities and video calling)
- How international and local travel restrictions are shifting outdoor and physical leisure and entertainment (such as gyms, malls and parks) to digital substitutes (such as social media, online gaming, and on-demand media)
Vincent’s views and research have been published by a wide range of platforms, including Bloomberg, Smartkarma and Tech In Asia. Don’t miss this webinar!
