FDM has experienced vast growth within the APAC region over the past seven years, with the Hong Kong Academy opening in 2016, the newer and larger Singapore Academy opening in 2017 and the Sydney Academy set to launch in 2018. With the scale and rapid growth of Fintech in the Chinese market, it is a great time to enhance FDM’s presence in mainland China.
Prior to joining FDM, Max was an Associate Project Manager for Golden Partner Asset Management, which is a sub-fund of Edmond de Rothschild, in Shanghai. Since joining the FDM team, Max has been working in Hong Kong to shadow the recruitment and sales teams in order to get a better sense of the business model and business operating mechanism. “The Hong Kong team has been very helpful and supportive, and I really enjoy working with them,” he said.
The new Shanghai centre is set to open in June 2018. Max will also be joined by FDM Alumna, Dora Zhang who will be the team lead for sales and recruitment in China.
“We are very excited about our growth in China and are pleased that Max and Dora are leading the charge for us,” said James Tuttiett, APAC Manager. “We look forward to working closely with both existing and new clients across China and growing FDM’s footprint in the region.”
Shanghai is the financial and commercial centre of China. For centuries, Shanghai has been the place where east meets west. Its architecture is a heady mix of traditional Chinese, western colonial and modern magnificence. The history of Shanghai has shaped its diverse and dynamic culture.
“I am very proud of the development and achievement of my city,” said Max, who is a local Shanghainese. “I look forward to starting my journey in Shanghai with FDM.”
