Private Equity Investors Flock to India and Indonesia Amid China Worries: Discover Why!

Investors’ interest in China’s slow recovery and lack of new growth opportunities has led them to turn to India and southeast Asia for investment opportunities. However, experts warn that these markets pose challenges such as a steep learning curve and limited exit routes. Private equity investors are particularly attracted to India and Indonesia as high interest rates and investor nervousness deter them from investing in China. In the healthcare sector, India has surpassed China as the largest market for buyout deals in the Asia-Pacific region. Many southeast Asian companies are focusing on their home markets rather than pursuing a China angle due to the pandemic. Even Chinese investors are diversifying by seeking deals in southeast Asia. However, allocating capital in these markets can be challenging, as the fragmented landscape and less mature capital markets result in fewer and smaller deals. Investors who are new to these markets also face difficulties in navigating differing business practices and conducting due diligence. Despite the challenges, investors are still exploring opportunities in southeast Asia, although buyout opportunities in Indonesia remain limited. For early-stage investors in emerging industries, public listings may not be a viable exit option in Indonesia’s energy and mining sectors. Geopolitical considerations, including US investment restrictions on China and the need for additional due diligence, further complicate investment decisions in Asia. While China may still be viewed as a long-term investment opportunity, caution currently dominates investor sentiment.
