Asian private capital markets are at an inflection point, with traditional sources of financing in decline, this is creating opportunities for private debt and equity providers. These markets are also characterized by a growing middle-class with ever increasing demand for products and services that are catered to them. Private capital is filling the gap in terms of providing longer-term funding to support this growth.
