Originally from China, our Head of China Desk Yanyuan Wang (Echo for short) has been living in the UK since 2011...
Having completed a Bachelor degree in Accounting and Finance and a Masters in Financial Analysis and Fund Management, Echo started with Winkworth as an Accounts Manager and has recently taken over the department.
What does your department do on a day-to-day basis?
My colleague Blair and I assist with the investment prospects and relocation needs of high net-worth clients both in China and within the Chinese community in the UK and more specifically the Capital.
With our strong Winkworth network of near 60 London offices, and our close relationships with major property developers across the country, we are ideally placed to act in the best interests of our Chinese clients to buy, sell, rent, let and manage their property.
We maintain very good connections with both solicitors and mortgage brokers, to help our clients buy and sell their property more smoothly.
What’s the best part about working at Winkworth China desk?
It’s very sociable! I get to meet different people all the time and I spend 50% of my day out of the office in meetings and viewing high end properties and developments. I love the opportunity I have to continuously learn more about new areas of London.
What are the future plans for China Desk?
To help more Chinese clients not just buy a property in London, but understand and enjoy more of London and to help the clients who have already invested in London - to manage their property as well as extend future investment.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love a bit of down time as my job means I work a lot of evenings and weekends doing viewings and attending events and openings, so I love reading and watching films.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
Japan! The scenery and sights are just incredible and the food is amazing!
