Asian MF Reputations

Hi everyone,

I am currently a first year analyst at a BB (think MS, etc.) in HK interested in Pan-Asia funds. Does anyone have up to date information (experience, bschool placement, comp) on good funds like Baring, MBK and PAG?

Thanks in advance!

In that case, I guess Asian MFs would include Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, and Jack Ma

For MBK, it seems like the majority of their capital is getting deployed in South Korea, so assuming you need to be based in Seoul (and speak Korean) to get exposed to their biggest deals.

Especially after maybe two months in and you start to learn a little bit of the buyside business

Of China based funds Hillhouse is probably the smartest.

Among MFs Warburg has the biggest Asia presence, TPG too. Blackstones group is more nascent so not as prestigious in Asia as the western world

Curious to learn about Hillhouse's structure - how are they organized? By industry or by public/PE side? Can you work on both? Within PE itself obviously they do more VC/growth investments, but what about the buyout practice, or are buyouts more opportunistic in nature (e.g. GLP) given the nature of the Asian markets? Many thanks for any insight

My team recently spoke with a partner there. At the senior level, it sounds like the staff invests across all the funds. The partner we spoke with looked at buyouts, GE, and public companies. Not sure if its the same for junior staff. Hope that helps

PAG's RE practice hugely respected in the industry. Worked at a NYC EB covering REPE globally and PAGRE's principles are a big deal even on this side.
