Experienced private equity investment professional; most recently Partner & Head of South Asia at Emerald Hill Capital Partners Limited 翠山基金投資有限公司, based in Hong Kong, where I was also a member of the firm’s Investment Committee and a Hong Kong SFC-licensed Responsible Officer.
Over the past decade, I have personally led or co-led (including sourcing, due diligence, structuring and negotiation, and monitoring) more than $800 million of commitments to Asian private equity, venture capital, real estate, credit / special situations, and natural resource funds (including spin-outs, first-time, and emerging managers), with a particular emphasis on Asian emerging markets, including China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
During this period I have also played a significant role (due diligence, IC member, etc.) in nearly $1.4 billion of other commitments to private funds in Asia (primarily China) and elsewhere (primarily U.S. and Europe) as well as buying and selling secondaries and evaluating and executing co-investments.
While at EHCP I sat on the advisory committees of more than 15 Asian private equity and real estate funds and have previously served as a member/observer or alternate on the advisory committees of more than 20 other private funds in Asia and the U.S./Europe.
In my various roles I have managed and invested discretionary capital on behalf of leading institutional clients, including university endowments, charitable foundations, corporate and public pensions, insurance companies, and family offices.
I have lived in Hong Kong for 8+ years and have worked on projects and investments in Asia for 11+, travelling extensively in the region and spending significant time "on the ground" in multiple countries; I am a Hong Kong Permanent Resident.
