Singapore: Investment management job search advice

Hello everyone,

I plan to visit Singapore in second week of March for a business trip, and happen to extend my stay for an extra two days. Is it a good idea to cold call portfolio managers (starting from undergrad alumni and other active investors in my geography) to have a brief chat and eventually ask them to consider me for a position. Also can anyone tell me a few recruiters who might be willing to consider me and push for an entry level position (pre-MBA) in Singapore?

Just a brief about myself- I have been working in a family office for close to 1.5 years covering equity and private investments (we pretty much cover anything under the sun that can make us money). Due to my unique experience of working across different asset classes, I have been approached by a few mid-market & tier II PE/ VC firms but not many public market firms (probably due to more competition).

Cheers,
apha_MAX
