KWM Hong Kong further strengthens equity capital markets practice with addition of Corey Zhang

King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) is delighted to announce the strategic expansion of the firm’s equity capital markets (ECM) practice with the addition of Corey Zhang to the Hong Kong partnership. Corey joins the Hong Kong office on 5 July 2021.

Corey joins from the Hong Kong office of a leading international firm with a strong capital markets focus. He has over a decade of experience advising issuers and underwriters on a range of equity and debt capital markets transactions, including Hong Kong IPOs, London global depositary receipt offerings, and Rule 144A and Regulation S debt offerings, as well as general securities and compliance matters.

Corey is native in Mandarin and fluent in English and Cantonese, and his clients include PRC and international investment banks, and corporates across various industries, including financial services, technology, healthcare, consumer goods, industrials, real estate, and energy. He is well regarded by the investment banking and corporate communities for his strong execution skills, deep client commitment and close PRC cultural affinity.

Zhang Yi, Chairman of KWM China Management Committee said, “We are excited to welcome Corey to the Hong Kong office. Hong Kong remains one of the most active bourses worldwide. With his regional track record, Corey’s appointment will add further strength and depth to our already-strong KWM ECM team in Hong Kong. His addition fully complements our ECM practice, adding to our US capabilities as we continue to see demand in cross-border capital market transactions.”

Corey Zhang said, “I am excited to be joining the highly-respected KWM Hong Kong office. I look forward to working alongside colleagues in Hong Kong, Mainland China and the broader KWM network around the globe to support our clients with their capital raising activities in Hong Kong and beyond.”

Corey’s appointment follows the recent addition of Song Yue to the Hong Kong partnership in January 2021 in the continued development of the Hong Kong office and further expansion of the firm-wide debt capital markets practice.
