Specialist Area:I manage the Front Office Banking and Financial Services recruitment practice for Morgan McKinley across south east Asia. We specialise in front office roles within Investment Banking, Private Equity, Private Banking and Corporate/ Transaction Banking.
My Advice:Over the past decade Singapore has steadily risen in prominence as a major banking and finance hub for the Asia Pacific region. In particular the industry has benefited significantly from rapid growth in the South East Asian economies such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. Although employer demand has flagged a little of late due to the global financial crises, there is still strong demand for candidates with strong Singapore or South East Asia based experience. At a junior to mid level your technical finance skills are critical while the strength of your South East Asian client network is critical for mid to senior front office banking roles.
I have over 10 years of banking and financial services experience including 7 years in equity research and M&A advisory focused investment banking. I have 4 years of recruitment experience all within the banking & financial services area in Singapore. I have managed teams covering the operations and finance functions, while I personally specialise in hiring into the investment banking and private equity sectors across South East Asia.
