Equity Research in SG. Chances buyside or sellside?

Postby tunaman » Tue, 22 Apr 2014 3:36 am

Hi,

How is the market looking for equity research? I am seriously considering moving from Europe with my gf, but I'd like to know what my chances really are. Sellside in HK seem to have been trimming headcount in '13. Is English-only a big barrier? What do firms like to see, coverage / experience-wise?

I have 7 years experience on the buy side with a medium-to-large US house as a generalist, covering a few Asian names and have am CFA qualified. Would have though this is enough but perhaps I'm fooling myself?

Any insights are appreciated,

tunaman

First of all, unless your GF gets an employment pass on her own, or you two get married, you won't be coming here with your GF.

Would be on the assumption that she can get an EP independently.
