Q1. Could you briefly describe your current job scope or responsibilities?

As an investment analyst with a focus on TMT (Technology, Media and Telecom) sector, I am responsible to initiate and execute opportunistic investments such as cross-border M&A, joint-venture partnerships, corporate restructuring, and spin-offs, etc.


Q2. 3 words to describe your life in your residing location (the country/ city), followed by a brief explanation.

Diversity, Vibrancy, and Heritage.

London is an amazing city to me. It is more culturally and ethnically diverse than I had ever imagined. It is also the foundation of this vibrant city that people treat different views and cultures with mutual respect.

Victorian buildings are also everywhere – even my office belongs to one of those! Heritage architecture and modern lifestyle work so well together here and this makes up a very unique ambience.


Q3. Which industry do you see strong business potential in your country and any reason?

Technology has been and will continue to be one of the industries which enjoy the strongest business potential, as we experience more technological progress and our economy gradually transforms towards digitalisation. AI, automated robots, next-gen connectivity, blockchain and quantum computing to name a few, have all been widely used in our everyday life already.


Q4. What is the one thing you miss the most during your study in CUHK Business School, and that you look forward to doing it/ making it happen again?

The entire MSc experience as whole!

The wide range of elective courses to develop skills according to my interests and career needs, knowledgeable and friendly professors & tutors, classmates with different professional backgrounds in the financial market, and of course the world-class facilities! (Who doesn’t like our CUHK campus after all?)
