Selby Jennings wants to break China through Hong Kong

Banking and financial recruiter Selby Jennings is readying to ramp up its operations in Hong Kong by the end of this year, with the firm’s head of sales and trading for Asia telling Recruiter the market can be a springboard into China.

Speaking to Recruiter from the Selby Jennings office in Singapore where he is based, Martin Andres says that while the firm already has a base in Hong Kong, this is a “satellite office” where consultants “tend to go quite regularly” to meet clients and candidates occasionally.

“That office is going to be staffed from Q4 – realistically, the end of the year or maybe January next year,” he says.

The Hong Kong office will initially focus on the sales and trading business, as well as the risk and fund management specialisms, with further Selby Jennings divisions, and indeed further companies within the Phaidon International group, likely to open up shop in due course.

Andres says that his team already does over 50% of its business in Hong Kong.

“If we want to go into China… it makes sense to have a fully staffed office on the ground there [in Hong Kong],” he says.
