  • (1888PressRelease) August 13, 2015 - Bluefield Partners, the Shenzen, China-headquartered broker-dealer and wealth manager has confirmed that it has initiated a recruitment drive aimed at building a new equity sales team that will operate from the firm's new Shanghai offices when they open in the third quarter of the year.

    The confirmation comes amid mild controversy centered on rumors circulating last week that executive search consultants retained by the firm had made unsolicited overtures towards key senior officials at several of its soon-to-be rivals in the primary dealer space.

    "Headhunting is par for the course in this industry so, if we were engaged in it, we'd have no qualms about admitting it but we're receiving considerable interest from high-caliber candidates walking through our door," said Naveen Chawla, newly-appointed Head of Equity Sales at Bluefield Partners.

    "There's nothing underhand about launching a well-funded advertising campaign that offers highly-attractive remuneration packages; we want the best people and the best people don't come cheap," Chawla added.

    The confirmed hires included 6 senior sales traders and 3 research analysts but, at the time of going to press, there was no information on how close Bluefield Partners is to sourcing a head trader although Chawla said he is in contact with a number of candidates.

    With less than 10 weeks to go before the offices are provisionally scheduled to open, the firm is expected to consider relocating personnel from its Hong Kong offices in the event that a full complement for the Shanghai equity sales operations is not available.

    "I'm confident that we will be able to meet our target for a full complement by the time we're expected to become operational," said Chawla.
