The Strategy and Transactions (SaT) team in Asia Pacific has been providing market leading services to clients across Greater China, ASEAN and Oceania for over 20 years. We support our clients in the region and globally throughout the end-to-end transaction lifecycle and have helped our clients create deal value and manage transaction risks.  Similar to all service lines in EY, SaT operates with a financial services sector focused team and another broad industry team.


FSO SaT focus on serving clients in the banking, insurance, asset management and fintech sectors, which are highly regulated segments bringing more sector specific training and exposures.  We are hiring Staff Accountants to support our Asia Pacific FSO SaT practice.

  • Transaction Diligence (TD) advises clients on buy-side and sell-side financial and operation due diligence. We work closely with Strategy and Transactions sub-service lines and competencies, and other EY service lines to deliver seamless, integrated due diligence to our clients.


  • Valuation, Modeling and Economics (VME) practices are the means by which we continue to bring our deep financial, economics and analytics skills to bear in order to support our clients with better decision-making involving transactions, funding capital expansion and optimizing capital efficiency (such as capital allocation to help adjust risk, cash release opportunity, capital budgeting with skill sets on measuring and valuating not just assets but also litigation or life).


  • Lead Advisory includes tactical and strategic advice for corporates, financial sponsors and family offices, as well as negotiation assistance and other transaction related topics.


  • Mergers & Acquisitions team provides sector-focused advice on the sale process from strategic positioning to close, and we help execute acquisitions, alliances and mergers as well as advise C-suite executives and boards on evaluating strategic alternatives in the context of transactions.


EY Parthenon (EY-P) covers 3 sectors including Strategy, Transaction Strategy and Execution (TSE) and Turnaround and Restructuring (TRS).


  • Strategy unlocks our clients’ full potential by helping them answer their most complex strategic questions. We rely upon rigorous fact-based analysis and deep sector expertise to deliver insights that provoke unconventional thinking. We help clients create customized and actionable strategies, and then we help to make them happen.
  • Transaction Strategy and Execution (TSE) assist clients to integrate acquired assets and businesses, providing strategic transaction advice and supporting execution to attain the value proposition contained in the strategic decision-making process.
  • Turnaround and Restructuring (TRS) provides leadership to rapidly solve, execute and ultimately transform the outcome during urgent, critical and complex situations
