General Experience

Jason specialises in structured products and derivatives for the sell side and buy side. He acts across a broad range of asset classes, including non-conventional assets.

Jason is a partner in our Financial Markets group in Singapore. He specialises in transactions for large international investment banks and regional asset managers – with a focus on structured products and derivatives.

As a band 1 practitioner in Chambers Asia Pacific, Jason has significant international experience in sophisticated markets like London, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.

His detailed knowledge of interbank markets, asset management, wealth management and investment products gives Jason a rounded picture of the market. He thinks carefully about each client’s specific business position and creates strategic legal solutions to suit.

As co-head of the firm’s cross-border structured products and derivatives group, Jason helps our international network operate efficiently and collaboratively. He’s also a regular speaker at key industry conferences and events, including ISDA and IMAS.

Jason joined us in 2001 and has completed secondments to our offices in Tokyo and Hong Kong, as well as with a major investment bank. He helped launch the Singapore office in 2013, and has been growing it ever since.

Some of his recent work includes:

  • Major investment bank: advised on a $1bn Indian bond fund-linked transaction 
  • Fund and equity linked platform: established and acted on more than $5bn of draw-downs of an off-balance sheet issuance programme he helped establish
  • Asian asset manager: advised on the negotiations around a suite of prime brokerage and transactional documents with 12 leading brokers.
