Private Equity Driving Massive Demand for Talent in Hong Kong

Singapore — (SBWIRE) — 03/14/2022 — Headcount is rising across the market in Hong Kong as China’s private equity firms look to leverage new talent following the slump in private equity and mergers and acquisitions activity.

It means that private equity has had a fairly slow start in 2022 but that isn’t likely to be the case for much longer. Now, private equity firms are on the hunt for both assets and talent and there have already been strategic statements of intent from major players in the market, particularly with respect to recruiting talent for tech /growth and cross-border investment.
