Representing the majority of the major global investment banks and big-name issuer clients, our client has considerable experience advising on some of the highest-profile capital markets deals across Asia in both debt and equity, ranging from corporate, high yield and sovereign bonds to securitisations, derivatives and structured products. In response to consistent deal flow, they are keen to hear from US Qualified Associates either on the ground in Hong Kong or looking to make an international move.
Applicants will be qualified to practice in the USA (3-6 years call) with experience across capital markets, including a solid background in U.S. federal securities laws and solid transactional experience executing capital markets transactions, in both equity and debt. Familiarity with debt and high-yield covenants is also desirable.

Comfortable with clients and proactive in your dealings with colleagues, you will be looking to take immediate responsibility, leading transactions where able.
