‘Money Games’: The Inside Story of an Iconic Asian Deal
|Ever wondered how big multibillion-dollar deals really get done? Longtime dealmaker Weijian Shan has written Money Games, the inside story of the takeover of what was once Korea’s largest bank by an American private equity firm. The Hong Kong-based leader of the team who completed the deal, Shan will discuss the book, which unlocks the mysteries of big private equity deals and the background behind the transaction. He also will give his views on M&A themes and developments in the region and how dealmaking has changed over that time. Moderated by FCC correspondent member governor Jennifer Hughes.
|Weijian Shan is Chairman and CEO of PAG, a leading Asian private equity firm. Previously, he was a partner at the private equity firm TPG and co-managing partner of TPG-Asia (formerly known as Newbridge Capital), a managing director at JP Morgan, and a professor at the Wharton School of Economics. He holds an MA and a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MBA from the University of San Francisco. He is the author of the books Out of the Gobi: My Story of China and America and Money Games.
