Tan serves on Haynes and Boone’s Board of Directors, Partners Compensation Committee, and Strategic Growth Committee. He regularly represents investment and commercial banks in connection with fund financings for private equity funds in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and North America, and frequently speaks on fund finance at legal and business seminars, hosted by, among others, Private Equity International, PERE, Privcap and Institutional Real Estate, Inc.
In 2019, the National Law Journal named Tan a Trailblazer in Banking, Finance and Capital Markets for his efforts in structuring some of the first subscription financings to real estate private equity funds and infrastructure funds in Asia.
Fund financing started as primarily a real estate private equity financing product in North America but has become a global private equity financing product. Fund financing now is commonly used by private equity funds in buyout, private debt, real estate, infrastructure and natural resources, among others alternative asset classes, in North America and South America, Europe, and increasingly in the Asia-Pacific region.
