About me: Kevin received a BA from Middlebury College in the US, where he majored in philosophy and German. Before LBS, Kevin worked for five years in China's asset management sector, first with HSBC Wealth Management, and then his own start-up Credit Frontier, a credit-strategy hedge fund with venture capital backing. The entrepreneurship experience ignited his interest of becoming a venture investor, so he undertook a summer internship with Cowin Capital, one of China's earliest venture capital funds, and has accepted a full-time offer to join L Catterton Asia, the world's largest consumer-focused private equity fund, as associate of consumer insights. He still enjoys pondering the deep secrets of human beings and hopes to unlock them one day.

Three topics I can be approached about: Working in China; remote learning; private equity/venture capital
