Money Games is a compelling tale of one of the most successful buyout deals ever. Dr. Weijian Shan, celebrated author and private equity investor, gives the insider’s account as the chief architect of this deal. Readers are taken through intrigue and suspense at every turn as they learn of the events leading to the acquisition and turnaround of what used to be Korea’s largest bank by the American firm, Newbridge Capital. With billions of dollars at stake, and the nation\'s economic future on the line, Newbridge Capital became the first foreign firm in history to take control of one of Korea’s most beloved financial institutions. In a conversation with Pete Sweeney, Asia Economics Editor at Thomson Reuters and the writer of the foreword to this book, Dr. Shan will share the captivating tale of how this high-stakes deal transformed into a massively profitable investment—and the legacy it left behind.\r\n\r\nThis program will be split into the two parts below:\r\n\r\nThe main event from 10:00 to 11:00 AM HKT is a free public webinar available on Facebook & YouTube (no registration required).\r\n\r\nThe second part of this program is immediately after the public webinar from 11:00 to 11:30 AM HKT. This will be a ticketed private off-the-record virtual meet-and-greet with Weijian Shan on Zoom only (limited spaces available - first come, first serve!).
