Asia Compact: Private Equity in Emerging Markets The 5th edition of Asia Compact: Private Equity in Emerging Markets took place from 4 to 14 April 2017. Taught by Prof. Dr. Stefan Morkoetter, the group was introduced to different aspects of private equity through a series of guest lectures, company visits and case study projects. Through interactions with the guest speakers and site visits, the participants were able to deepen their knowledge of the context and dynamics in the area of private equity. The lecture provided students with an overview of Private Equity and discussed in detail the asset class’s exposure to Southeast Asia. Students also had the opportunity to interact with local companies and practitioners, with visits to the IFC and Partners Group being a highlight of the class. Students also had the opportunity to explore various parts of Singapore, through a boat tour on the Singapore River, a visit to the Singapore City Gallery and a BBQ at East Coast Park.
