Area of expertise: As a specialist recruiter in Funds Partnership Asia, I work closely with candidates for roles such as Chief Financial Officer, Financial Controller, Finance Director, Finance Manager, Fund Accountants, within the whole value chain of the asset management industry. We are continuously seeking out industry leaders looking to share their expertise, or to look for new career change.

Background: Prior to joining Funds Partnership Asia, I specialised in recruitment for the Food & Beverage, Retail and Manufacturing sectors for the past five years, and placed candidates from Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea and China. As someone who does not settle for the status quo, I wanted to challenge myself by venturing into a different industry and working on roles which require completely different skillsets. I was drawn to the Asset Management and Investment Funds industry because it allows me to connect the dots of the entire value chain, from the seeding of life for a business to the whole ecosystem of value creation.

Career Advice: Disruption can be a positive force in building a more well-rounded and robust working culture. Employers may benefit from hiring non-traditional candidates who can offer different perspectives and new solutions. Employees may gain more by going outside their comfort zones and acquiring new skills and knowledge to help further their careers. Embrace challenges and the accompanying failures while you can, don’t miss out on these valuable experiences in life. I look forward to connecting with like-minded people who want to help themselves grow, their companies to do well and to better serve their clients.
