For Recruiters

Asian hedge funds fishing for staff

Recruiters say hedge funds in Asia are increasingly inviting outside applications for job vacancies, instead of filling openings using their own networks.

"Big US funds such as Elliott International, Stark Investments and Citadel don't have a lot of contacts in the market and are turning to recruiters to find staff," says one Hong Kong-based headhunter. "It's become normal to transfer a chief operating officer from New York and to then hire middle and back office people locally."

In another sign of the robust health of the Asian hedge fund industry, the Singapore Exchange has announced its intention to have up to 20 funds listed on its bourse by the end of next year.

The exchange, Asia's third-largest for publicly traded securities, began accepting hedge fund listings last month according the Business Times. The paper quotes Sharon Ang, an assistant vice president with the Singapore Exchange, who says they are already close to seeing their first listing.
