T&M-DDP Executive Forum Series: Managing Director of Baring Private Equity Asia shared insight of “Multidiscipline As a Competitive Advantage For Investment Banker”

Dual Degree Program in Technology & Management (T&M-DDP) has invited Mr. Guy CUI, Managing Director, Baring Private Equity Asia, to share his insight of “Multidiscipline As a Competitive Advantage For Investment Banker” at the Technology and Management Executive Forum on 12 October 2015. 

Mr CUI was one of the youngest university students in China in the 70s. He was only 15 years old when entered university.  His Bachelor and Master degrees were both in Engineering and his PhD was in Science.  But at the end, Mr CUI does not work as an engineer but an investment banker.

After working in Morgan Stanley China Investment Banking and HSBC’s Resources and Energy Group in Asia Pacific, Mr CUI started his own business as the partner of Hopu Investment Management Co. Ltd. Mr CUI has joined Baring Private Equity Asia as Managing Director in January 2012 till now and travels around the world to look for interesting investment opportunities. 

Mr CUI shared how his multidisciplinary background helped him develop to be a professional in the financial service industry and hoped that his thoughts and ideas would be helpful for students’ career planning and inspire their study. He also shared that the excitement of being an investment banker was to know how and why major decisions of big corporations were made, and to help those big corporations execute their plans, which was very rare in other jobs.

Mr CUI encouraged students to leave home to look for more opportunities around the globe and become a global citizen.  And they will be able to learn how to made judgement and decision independently.
