We are currently assisting our client, a global asset manager in their search for a top credit risk candidate in Hong Kong.
This is a newly created role and will report directly to the Chief Risk Officer. The reason this role has come up is because our client has created a new alternative investment team early this year, that includes private credit, private real estate and private equity. Therefore, they feel this is the right time to get a senior credit risk candidate on board who can act as a front office specialist in evaluating credit investments.
They do not have a credit risk team at the moment, only a risk management team (equities) and the CRO supervises two risk management staff. Their risk team has been mainly focusing on traditional funds. This new hire will focus on the alternative investment side.
This candidate must come with experience in handling special situation funds.
