Curious what other guys just starting out are thinking about China, other emerging markets.
"Watch for China to become the world's center of private equity within five to 10 years, according to David Rubenstein, co-founder of The Carlyle Group."
My gut is that this a boat you can only catch if you are from China, India, etc and have native grasp of the language. Disagree?
Also, would country level exposure be easier to gain via a hedge fund career (vs private equity)?
Despite misgivings about the ability to succeed of nonChinese in China, I am a strong believer that being in the right place at the right time is often all it takes. Trying to figure out if there is anything I should be / could be doing.
Options would be:
* independent language study (already comfortable with Japanese)
* MA / MBA
* Trying to work in Hong Kong
