MC Vanguard boosts corporate finance team as it looks to Chinese markets

MC Vanguard Corporate Finance has strengthened its team with the appointment of Nan Zheng as it looks to generate merger and acquisition deals between companies in China and the UK. 

She joins the leading North West-based corporate finance practice as Corporate Finance Executive from the Beijing office of international accountancy group ShineWing, where she was a senior associate.Brian McCann and Nan Zheng

She has also worked in Hong Kong and has more than 5 years extensive experience and knowledge of the Chinese market, advising on acquisition and sale, business valuation, financial due diligence and strategy.

MC Vanguard Corporate Finance is part of Mitchell Charlesworth LLP, a North West-based accountants and business advisors specialising in the SME sector, which has offices in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Chester, Warrington and Widnes. With the arrival of Nan, the firm now has a team of 7 corporate finance specialists working across its offices


There are growing economic opportunities for the region with Chinese companies eager to invest in the North West and closer trade links developing all the time. Part of my role will be working with the contacts that I have in China to generate M&A transactions between companies in both countries. It is about seeking out those opportunities.

A native of the Chinese capital, Nan, who studied at the University of Warwick, will be based at the Manchester office.

She said: “I’m looking forward to my new role. I was drawn by the business culture and passion for SMEs at MC Vanguard, helping the development of companies and working so closely with them. My experience is very much in fundraising and valuation projects. I’m also looking to use my experience of the Chinese market to help businesses in the North West, who are either already doing business with China or looking to do so.

MC Vanguard’s experienced team has completed a wide range of transactions and has advised on a range of business deals in different industry sectors with clients across the UK.

Partner at the practice Brian McCann said: “We’re delighted to welcome Nan Zheng to our team in the North West. She brings extensive international experience gained working for large international practices and has a strong background in fundraising and valuation, as well as business strategy.

“Her working knowledge of China will also be invaluable and is already helping us to seek out new opportunities for our clients in a country which is keen to do business with the North West and whose companies are actively looking for investment and trade opportunities in the region.”
