AIMA APAC Webinar: An Update on Japanese Investors Perspective to Offshore Alternative Fund Accounting Considerations

Japan Singapore China Hong Kong Australia


AIMA APAC invites you to join our webinar on 21 January.

Given Japanese investors' need to diversify their investment portfolio, allocations to alternative investments including real estate and private equity continue to rise. Under such circumstances, more and more Japanese investors have been investing in offshore (non-Japanese) alternative fund platforms.  In cases where Japanese investors invest in offshore fund platforms, it often becomes necessary to adjust for accounting (i.e. GAAP) differences and there are unique issues for offshore fund platforms compared to domestic Japanese funds. 

During this session, we would like to provide insight on the schemes for both domestic and offshore fund platforms; the differences in accounting bases, and potential issues that would arise from the perspective of a Japanese investor.

In addition, this session will also be useful for offshore fund managers when communicating with Japanese clients.


This webinar will be held in ENGLISH ONLY.
