Sixpoint Partners Hires Tan for Asia Distribution Role

Oct 17 2016 | 5:13pm ET

Sixpoint Partners has opened a new office in Hong Kong and named former Diamond Dragon Advisors executive Joan Tan as head of Asian distribution.

The move expands Sixpoint’s team to 20 professionals across four offices in North America and Asia, the company said in a statement. Tan will be based out of Sixpoint’s new Hong Kong office and will be responsible for the placement of fund interests with Asian institutional investors, as well as originating outstanding private equity funds for Sixpoint’s platform.

Tan brings 15 years of experience to her new role. She has built an impressive track record in the global banking and financial markets, Sixpoint said, working on over a dozen fundraises across a wide range of alternative asset fund strategies. Most recently, she was head of China at Diamond Dragon Advisors, an independent Asia-focused placement firm. As one of the founding members, Ms. Tan opened the China GP and LP market, established the firm’s brand and implemented key strategic initiatives.

“Joan’s appointment underscores our commitment to growing Sixpoint’s presence and capabilities to a global scale,” said Eric Zoller, founder and partner of Sixpoint, in the statement. “Her deep experience in capital raising in Asia and extensive network make her a strong addition to our distinguished team.”

New York-based Sixpoint Partners is a leading global investment bank focused on a diversified set of services and solutions for the middle-market private equity industry, including primary fund placement, secondaries advisory and co-investment placement across a wide range of industries, strategies and geographies.
