Raymond McCabe, co-founder of Outset Global, said, “Our hires of Chris and Paul in Hong Kong, and James in London, are a testament to the quality of talent Outset Global provides to our global client base. Investors’ growing demand for a high-quality Asian solution drove us to launch our Asian equities business in 2018 with Jeremy Weemhoff’s hire. We believe the best global solution for our clients comes from strong local solutions. To achieve this, a local presence in Asia is more important than ever, and our commitment to broker access and talent means it couldn’t be anywhere but in Hong Kong.
