A very fitting celebration of 20 years of service to the industry.

The evening was heralded by a spirited HKVCA song sung by 17 past Chairmen and current Executive Committee members, setting the mood for a lively and fun evening.

Johnny Chan, Chairman 2007-08 recognized the past and present contributions of those who volunteered their time to help the Association promote the asset class in Hong Kong and China.

Victor Fung, Founding Chairman recounted history of how the Association begun and the evolution of the industry.

The highlight was a talk by Mr. Hank Greenberg, Chairman and CEO of C.V.Starr & Co Inc, the business titan in US and around the globe, a leader in US-China relations. He is held in high regard for his vision and acumen in building the largest global insurer. Mr. Greenberg providing interesting observations and perspective on private equity, globalization and the place of China.

With the success of the industry over the past 20 years, it was time for some 'giving back' to the community. Auctions of 7 contemporary Chinese paintings from Alisan Fine Arts including a lithograph from Zao Wou Ki were sold. Sporting memorabilia which included a Rolling Stone signed guitar were also popular. The auction raised more than $250,000 for the Chinese University Students Exchange Program and Chi Heng Foundation for orphans of AIDs victims in China.

HKVCA/AIMA Champagne Tasting
October 8, 2007

The "Wine Tasting" gets better each year. This year AIMA joined us in organizing the event.

Always interesting and fun, Simon Tam the renowned wine expert in Hong Kong walked through 6 top notch champagnes. The participants very much enjoyed the generous tasting of Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial, Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial, Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2000, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Veuve Clicquot Vintage 1999, Ruinart Blanc de Blanc, Dom Perignon Vintage 1999, Krug Grande Cuvee, learning to differentiate between their different qualities and tastes. It was an excellent introduction to beginners and sharpened the taste buds of the discerning.

With participation of AIMA, it was a good opportunity for members of the two Associations to meet. Many stayed behind way after 9pm, attesting to the success of the event.
