C- Level Executive for Fund Distribution and Product Strategy - Asset Management / Wealth Management

My client is an International Asset Management and Wealth Management firm. They are looking for a Fund of Long Only Funds C-Level executive to be based either in Mainland China or Hong Kong.

As part of their ongoing expansion they have identified a need to have someone in a leadership role and head up the products business and develop / strengthen their traditional long only asset management arm. At this stage they have a number of interesting traditional fixed income funds but as a firm would like to extend their products business to include equities and other asset classes.

Your main role will be to develop this business, be someone that can oversee the products business, keep an eye on global markets and be able to understand / react appropriately to different business cycles by selecting the most suitable products for their clients.

Over time their intention would be to build their own world class asset management arm. However they will be building this business in a more innovative way namely using Artifical Intelligence Machine Learning/Neural Networks, Robo Advisors and other tech applications like apps to revolutionize the way some parts of the asset management businesses are run and how they interact with end clients on the street.

This client is a fast growing firm and will be shooting for IPO within next 2 years. Given this firm has a big china angle to their business /  client base they are hoping that the incumbant will be able to speak, read and write chinese.

Given this is an international set up, they would prefer candidates that have International Experience or Education in one of the top Universities and preferably should hold CFA and MBA. The ideal candidate will be a senior executive in a global asset management equities or fixed income / multi asset fund house, and with strong experience/knowledge in fund distribution business, and able to lead the overall product and distribution strategy for the whole firm.
