RELATED TOPICS​

Evercore’s Private Funds Group has made two new hires in its Hong Kong office, expanding the team’s current activities in the Asia Pacific region.

Ian Bell joins the firm as a managing director from Credit Suisse and will lead the group’s distribution and origination efforts across the Asia Pacific region. Bell will be supported in Hong Kong by Manda Chan, who joins from MVision Private Equity Advisers.
 
Richard Anthony, CEO of the Private Funds Group, says: “We are delighted to welcome Ian and Manda to the team. As fundraising for and from the region continues to strengthen, we believe our presence in the Asia Pacific region is key in offering both our GP and LP clients a comprehensive and truly global advisory service.”
 
At Credit Suisse, Bell was previously responsible for institutional investor coverage across the firm’s Asia Pacific client base. Bell has a proven track record of partnering with many of the region’s largest pensions, insurers and sovereign wealth funds in providing investment solutions across private equity, credit, infrastructure, real estate, hedge funds and other alternative asset classes. Bell started his Investment banking career in both the Sydney and London offices of Deutsche Bank’s Global Markets Division, where he was responsible for coverage of institutional clients on interest rate and credit derivative products.
 
Bell says: “The Evercore Private Funds Group has built an enviable reputation in our industry as one of the few high quality placement groups with a truly global reach. I look forward to continuing to build on that theme as we continue to strengthen our relationships with clients on the ground here in Asia.”
 
Chan was previously an associate at MVision Private Equity Advisers where she worked on project management of various fundraises across the Asia Pacific region, and was also responsible for coverage of many leading limited partners across Greater China. Chan began her career within the restructuring advisory services division of KPMG.
