Swiss-Asia Taps Pying-Huan Wang to Head Infrastructure Investments

Jan 7 2011 | 11:32am ET

Singapore-based Asian fund manager Swiss-Asia Financial Services has appointed Pying-Huan Wang head of infrastructure investments. Wang will also serve as managing director for the company’s Hong Kong arm, Swiss-Asia Asset Management (HK).

Wang, a Swiss-born Taiwanese, comes to Swiss-Asia from Deutsche Bank’s private equity group in Zurich, where she headed investment management. Before relocating to Europe, she had been one of the founding members of Excelsior Capital Asia (a direct investment firm) and prior to that had worked in UBS’ project finance division in Hong Kong.

She joins Swiss-Asia as it prepares to launch a new infrastructure investment project, the China District Energy Fund, a Luxembourg SICAR. The fund will buy, refurbish, upgrade and expand district energy assets in Greater China. (District energy refers to the centralized supply of thermal energy to cities and industrial parks.) Swiss-Asia will work with Dalkia, a division of Veolia Environment and a leading energy service provider.

In her new role, Wang will analyze investment opportunities, conduct due diligence and monitor investments independently from the fund’s industrial partners in addition to managing Swiss-Asia Asset Management (HK).

Olivier Mivelaz, CEO and founder of Swiss-Asia, said: “We are pleased to have Pying-Huan join our fast-growing organization. With over 15 years of experience in private equity and project finance, in Asia as well as in Europe, she will be a great asset to the existing team and enhance our fund management scope.”
