Deacons has advised Harvest Global Investments on its entry into Switzerland under the Swiss-HK mutual fund recognition scheme. It is now the first fund house to offer its Hong Kong domiciled funds - China Equity Fund and its Asia Frontier Equity Fund in Switzerland after the Swiss regulator FINMA approved the application.

Harvest Global Investments was established in Hong Kong in 2008 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Harvest Fund Management Co., Ltd. It is one of the largest Chinese institutional asset managers by AuM, serving 50 million clients.

Deacons’ team is led by Alwyn Li, investment funds partner and Sam Lau, associate.
