Japan’s demographic dilemma offers an opportunity for private equity

Scott Reynolds—Country Executive, Japan at Alter Domus—explores the implications of an aging population for investors in a recent article for Private Equity International

The piece examines the country’s evolving needs and challenges across sectors such as recruitment and healthcare, and the unconventional investment opportunities this shift creates. Scott highlights that the Japanese government is now taking steps to boost the population by encouraging immigration—up almost 44% since 2015.

What could this increase make possible for Japan’s economy—and how can investors benefit?

The Japanese government has historically been reluctant to open those gates, but this is slowly changing.
