Sales & Trading in Asia - GENERAL
I was wondering about Sales & Trading in Asia. My situation is a bit unique ...
I worked at Bear for around a year before they went down, in Risk Mgmt. Moved to an M&A Boutique in SF for about 1.5 years after that before quitting ...
Currently i'm an entrepreneur based in Seoul. I want to break back into the industry, in Sales & Trading, but I specifically want to be located somewhere in Asia for personal reasons.
Many of my friends and associates have told me "you can do S&T any place, you don't have to know the local language" ... and I just want to corroborate if this is actually true.
I know from college recruiting that, for example, you don't need to speak Japanese to work in S&T in Japan. I'm pretty sure the same applies for HK.
Does the same apply for other countries in Asia? Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, etc?
Also, what's the best way to tap into regional analyst / associate programs for those who aren't currently in university??
Any information would be appreciated.
