Zhang Liping: reputation built on getting deals done

Zhang Liping and Janice Hu of Credit Suisse are China’s quiet rainmakers. Both shy away from the limelight, preferring to let their deal records speak for themselves. They also embody two diverse but equally effective strains of rainmaker.

Zhang seems to have been around for ever, having worked on many of the landmark stock sales of state-run mainland firms in the 1990s.

Like Merrill Lynch’s Erhfei Liu, another oft-cited China rainmaker who is currently moving to a more private equity-focused position at his bank, Zhang is not a so-called princeling, one of the coterie of bankers, financiers, and social and business climbers related to senior Beijing mandarins.
