Hillhouse’s Mervyn Chow Moves Into Advisory Role at Firm

Mervyn Chow, a partner at Hillhouse Capital Management, is stepping back from investment and will take on an advisory role at the buyout firm, according to people familiar with the matter.

Chow is transitioning to the new role where he will be focusing on advising portfolio companies, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the information is private. Records at Hong Kong’s securities regulator shows the effective date of his license with Hillhouse ended on April 26.

A representative at Hillhouse declined to comment, while Chow didn’t return calls seeking comment.

Chow spent almost 20 years at Credit Suisse Group AG before joining Hillhouse in 2018. He was the Swiss bank’s chief executive officer for Greater China and the co-head of investment banking and capital markets for Asia Pacific before his departure.

Founded by Lei Zhang in 2005, Hillhouse currently employs more than 350 investment professionals globally, investing across Asia and the world from its home bases in Hong Kong, Beijing and Singapore, according to its website.
