Thanks to Vienne Lee for connecting me to her trusted circle within Finance Mandarin elites to expand my network. While I consider myself advanced-level to native Mandarin speaker in professional Mandarin, I made the decision to invest personal time and capital into a Finance Mandarin course that had a bespoke curriculum. I am confident this positions me better in my day job working on transactions in China. My expertise is in the real estate and asset-backed securitisation finance, including distressed and non-performing loans. With Finance Mandarin, it has further broaden my understanding of China's real estate and capital markets through case studies prepared by my trainer - this includes Real Estate Developers, Debt-Equity Swaps, China Asset Management Companies, RCEP agreements and PBOC initiatives/policies. Given COVID, all my Finance Mandarin training was conducted online during 2020. The learning platform is intuitive and allows for easy revision.
