Langham Hall operates in Asia with offices based in Hong Kong and Singapore, and a team over 80 which continues to grow. The Hong Kong office was established in 2008 and includes Mandarin and Cantonese speakers, with significant experience in Asian funds. Our administration work is conducted in Hong Kong rather than sub-outsourced to other locations, as well as from our office in Singapore, which has been established to serve our clients with fund administration and accounting support locally. We undertake the administration of Singapore fund structures and SPVs, as well as feeder funds domiciled in other jurisdictions.

I have been with Langham Hall in Hong Kong for more than three years now. I joined the Company as a fresh graduate after I completed my Accounting and Finance degree at the University of Exeter, UK. During my first two years at the company, my main responsibility was to prepare different kinds of deliverables, from management accounts to quarterly reports, from capital call notices to carried interest waterfall. This was a period when I had lots of opportunity to build up my technical skills in both professional accounting and fund administration areas.
After my second year, I was promoted to Senior Associate. I was given more chance to communicate with clients and to review work done by junior team members. It was a time when I started to gain a deeper insight in to the private equity industry, as I became more familiar with clients’ operations and market practice. During this period, I was also given training in my soft skills such as communication and client management skills, which helped to shape me into a more professional fund accountant.
At the end of 2019 I was promoted to Team Assistant Manager. Meanwhile I continue to advance my technical and client management skills. I now assist my Manager to lead the team and to coach my team members.
I am grateful that I started my career at Langham Hall, where I have been given lots of exposure and support to build up my professionalism in this specialised industry.

I have been part of Langham Hall for almost three years, which has been a rewarding experience, filled with many opportunities. I joined as a Graduate Private Equity Fund Accountant in 2017 and have been promoted to Associate Private Equity Fund Accountant in 2018 and Senior Associate Private Equity Fund Accountant in 2019.
I came in with a fear of not having any experience or prior knowledge of fund accounting, however, this was quick to disappear due to the Company's exemplary focus on personal and professional growth. Beyond this, the company also offers a wide spectrum of training and presents opportunities for individuals to progress and develop across a number of different areas.
I have gained tremendous experience from people throughout the business who have, both directly and indirectly, positively influenced my development. Overall, I think Langham Hall provides multiple development and career progression opportunities for individuals who wish to expand their knowledge and deepen their skills in fund accounting.

Working at Langham Hall has given me a front-row seat to the fund administration and accounting industry. The incredible mentorship staff receive from seniors and management has enriched the experience and makes the journey more rewarding.
I started as a Graduate Fund Accountant at Langham Hall after obtaining my Master’s Degree from City University of Hong Kong in 2019. Upon joining the company, it became apparent to me that Langham Hall is nurturing and generous in providing space for development and growth. The Personal Development Program (PDP) helps us build a solid knowledge foundation in the private equity fund accounting industry. In a short time I learned different fund structures like Master and Feeder funds and also grasped a basic understanding of how to calculate carried interest after attending the “Introduction to Private Equity Fund” training session run for new joiners. This knowledge has been very helpful in my subsequent daily work. Providing services to different funds gives good exposure to understanding different reporting standards.
After joining Langham Hall I was promoted to Associate Fund Accountant in less than a year and I am now taking more responsibility with client work.
