Financial advisory firm StormHarbour has beefed up its Asia-Pacific business with four senior hires in its Singapore and Hong Kong offices.
The firm has tapped Barclays Capital vet Aaron Tan as a senior advisor. During his time at Barclays, Tan was a managing director and head of Hong Kong coverage, investment banking and debt capital markets. In his new role, Tan will advise on and originate real estate transactions.
In Singapore, StormHarbour has added a trio of managing directors responsible for expanding the firm’s Asia-Pacific infrastructure finance business. They are Jean-Christophe Levens, Marc-Antoine Thiriez and Hugo Virag, all former founding partners of the infrastructure advisory firm Partners in Infrastructure.
The appointments are the latest in a wave of new hires, as StormHarbour expands its international reach. In recent months, the firm has appointed over 30 senior professionals to its New York and Geneva offices and now employs over 180 worldwide.
Water Cheung, StormHarbour principal and Asia-Pacific CEO, said: “The appointments of Aaron, Jean-Christophe, Marc-Antoine and Hugo are further evidence of our commitment to the region and providing our clients with the best possible local expertise for their needs. Each individual has extensive industry experience and expertise, which together with their senior level relationships among Asian corporates and financial institutions will be of huge benefit to us as we grow our real estate and infrastructure finance businesses in the region. We welcome them to the StormHarbour team.”
