Simon Wong - Dechert

Within: Investment funds

Dechert's diverse Asia funds practice, which is headed up by Michael Wong, is strong in a wide range of asset classes, including real estate funds, private equity buyout funds, debt funds, hedge funds and registered funds. The firm stands out in fund formation mandates involving highly complex structuring, operational and regulatory issues. In a recent highlight, Wong and associate Simon Wong acted for China Everbright on the formation of a $1bn fund, Everbright Overseas Infrastructure Investment Fund, which targets overseas infrastructure opportunities. Having previously advised the same client on the formation of feeder fund Everbright Dynamic Bond Fund Feed Fund I in November 2015, the firm is also assisting the client with establishing a second feeder fund, CEL Huarong Dynamic Bond Feeder Fund. Primavera Capital, Integrated Asset Management and HarbourWay Investment Management are other active sponsor clients. In addition to advising sponsors, the team is active in investor-side representations, as was evidenced when Michael Wong (and practitioners from other overseas offices) recently acted for Silk Road Fund in its US$200 million investment in the China Central and Eastern Europe Investment Co-Operation Fund II SCS SICAV-SIF.
