FundFAQ! for Private Equity Investments

24 Apr 2019


FundFAQ began with the interest in giving back to our candidate community – its priority is to share information with individuals whom are in their specific industries (e.g Hedge Fund Accounting, Private Equity Fund Accounting, Corporate Secretarial, etc) and aims to give bite-size infographics for many whom ready on-the-go.¬†With this individually-driven market feedback that has been gathered at Funds Partnership Asia, we also want to keep the ecosystem transparent and share it with hiring firms, keeping them abreast to the market’s responses.

FundFAQ narrows down the key questions to look out for, what other opportunities are the candidate market also applying to and most importantly, how did they feel after attending the interview.
