My client is a Chinese asset management firm is looking for a MD/CEO level executive to run and manage their N.Asia business. This firm is managing over USD 50bn Assets under management with a strong proportion of that coming from offshore investors. They are expanding in to Hong Kong market to increase their fund raising efforts by targeting intermediaries and institutions in Hong Kong and other markets in North Asia.
They have an interesting business model – they believe in disrupting the asset and wealth business by bringing wealth management services accessible for the masses! They do this by technology, apps and other interesting products. They are rethinking how asset management works today and how it should look like in today’s 4th industrial revolution. Hence they are looking for someone rather unique.
Firstly they want someone with a strong network with intermediaries not necessarily just the retail / private banks or insurance firms but also they are thinking wider by partnering with major app/fin tech companies.
They want to focus mainly on mutual fund products although are open to selecting other alternative funds or structured products as they see fit and in line with risk appetite of their end investors.
Aside from a great network and business development acumen, the CEO will also be responsible for getting the SFC license – hence they require someone who is already registered with SFC as a Type 1,4 and 9.
Since this role requires working with HQ in China the ideal candidate should be able to read and write/speak Mandarin.
For further information please forward a note to me on email@example.com together with your CV.
