After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade, I worked for over three years at Roth Capital Partners, a Newport Beach, California-headquartered investment bank dedicated to the small- to mid-cap sector. The invaluable experience of equity research and later of deal origination, negotiation and execution taught me the importance of performing due diligence and gaining knowledge of what lies behind financial statements through communication with management teams, whether in the US or China. Through my involvement in more than 10 deals as a key member of an execution team of investment bankers, and participation in the completion of two billion-dollar IPOs and one follow-on financing project, I have gained a great deal of knowledge about financial transactions. I am now striving for more knowledge and seeking inspiration and international exposure through the HKU MBA programme.
