The new Secondary Investment Division will be headed by Mr. Charles Chan, a Member of the Board of Directors for Samuel Freshfields.
The private equity secondary market, often referred to as private equity secondaries or just Secondaries, implies the buying and selling of pre-existing client commitments to private equity and other alternative investment funds. Samuel Freshfields has been engaged in this field of value creation since its inception and is currently deploying a team of market experts with a great deal of experience in the industry, to survey, identify and strategize opportunities in the Secondaries market.
The firm has been maintaining the status of alpha investment manager across Asia Pacific Region and is set to pursue higher grounds of profit return on the global financial arena. The newly implemented department will include an addition of 5 experts alongside the currently existing team of people, that will be supervised by a Division Head appointed from among the Members of the Board of Samuel Freshfields.
“Through his dedication, meticulous approach and deep understanding of our mission of value creation and client satisfaction, Charles has been attracting the attention of the Board of Directors as to the responsibilities that he can approach and address with his massive potential. The team was there, the demand from our clients was there so we have decided to structure a more specialized tool of profit potential and take advantage of Charles’ expert view of business on a global scale,” said Mr. Anthony Chung-kong, Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer for Samuel Freshfields.
“We will uphold our firm’s status in the Secondaries market and perform under the most ambitious goals while staying grounded and committed to the values that brought us together as well as increasing the confidence of our worldwide family of clients,” added Mr. Chan.
