ATH first: Advance training on hedge funds

The Asia-Pacific Talent Hub recently spearheaded its very first seminar titled Advance training on hedge funds. The training was conducted by EY Hong Kong and Singapore partners and managers. The four-day activity gave a concise overview of investments funds, the general audit approach on hedge funds and offshore funds legislation. It also aimed to help the participants understand what is to be expected from its Hong Kong and Singapore onshore team counterparts.

The participants were divided into nine groups and were tasked to complete an activity with assigned scores. The group with the highest score went on to have a scrumptious dinner with the instructors. To sum up the activity, EY Hong Kong partner George Saffayeh said: “ATH is an integral part of an engagement team in the same way as the onshore and offshore teams. There should not be any geographical gaps among the team members to ensure the completion of the engagement.”
