Peter C Kuo joins Lazard to head Asian Equity Capital Markets Advisory

RELATED TOPICS​

Peter C Kuo has joined Lazard as a Managing Director and Head of Equity Capital Markets Advisory in Asia, effective immediately. Based in Hong Kong, Kuo most recently served as a Managing Director of Cowen and Company.

“I am delighted that Peter Kuo has joined us in Hong Kong,” says Yan Lan, Head of Greater China Investment Banking for Lazard. “We expect that his depth of experience in capital raising for Chinese companies will be of tremendous benefit to our clients in the region seeking capital markets and strategic transactions advice.”

Tom Tuft, Chairman, Global Capital Markets Advisory, says: “Chinese companies are seeking advice on opportunities to raise capital in China and abroad, while non-Chinese based companies are evaluating capital raising involving the China and Hong Kong markets. Peter will be a great resource in Asia both for capital raising as well as capital structure advisory related to mergers and acquisitions in the region.”

Lazard’s Equity Capital Markets business provides advice to corporations with respect to all forms of public and private equity, and equity-linked financings, including initial public offerings, follow-on and convertible financings and private placements.

Kuo was formerly a Managing Director of the wholly-owned Asia subsidiary of Cowen and Company, where he was responsible for the origination and execution of its capital raising transactions for Chinese companies. He began his career at Davis Polk & Wardwell in 1998. A Fulbright Scholar in Taipei, Kuo received a JD from Harvard Law School and a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University.
