Hi all! First time poster here, please be kind.
Wondering if anyone here is based in the South East Asia, specifically in Business Development.

I'm in early stages of my career with plans to relocate in the next five years. May I ask what can I do/plan now, in sights of my plan?

If you haven't already, I would try to research the documents/paperwork you'll need to relocate. Visa's etc can take a lot of time, and knowing what you'll need to get started in a few years would be a great idea. Otherwise I would focus on expanding your skillset and making yourself a fantastic hire, so that it'll be easier for you to get a better job once you relocate.


Thanks for the advice! I haven't thought of researching the required paperwork, I'll get to it soon.

Just curious, are there particular set of skills that make a hire more desirable in your opinion? I'm aware that there might be cultural differences between the East and the West.

Welcome to the community! Which country exactly in South east Asia would you like to relocate in the future?

I would consider Singapore personally, there's a lot of growth there. Maybe Malaysia as well, decent work culture

Hi everyone

I'm in a business development role based in Asia. May I get your thoughts/pointers on the CAIA?

I'm aware that the CAIA is not as popular in Asia compared to the CFA. From my knowledge, there are no CAIA holders in my current firm within the Asian region, despite dealing with alternative investments.

Would be happy to hear your thoughts regarding the CAIA, and study tips if you have any!
