William Haus joins as part of HFG’s corporate finance group. Haus most recently served as CEO of a special-purpose acquisition corporation in China, but earlier in his career lead due diligence and deal execution for a China-focused hedge fund.

“We have seen tremendous growth in our China business as an ever-increasing number of investors in the U.S. are seeking ways to invest in China,” Tim Halter, chairman of Dallas-based HFG, said. “Mr. Haus has significant experience in deal execution, financial analysis and management that we plan to leverage as our operations in China continue to grow.”

Chief among those operations is a proprietary hedge fund. HSG’s China hedge fund makes direct investments in private Chinese companies in conjunction with a U.S. public listing.
