Adam Schwartz, senior managing director of First Manhattan Co., and Sean Huang, managing director and portfolio manager of First Beijing, joined the MOI Global community at the Latticework 2017 summit, held at the Yale Club of New York City in September.

We are pleased to share a transcript of the session with members.

The following transcript has been edited for space and clarity.

Shai Dardashti, MOI Global: We have Adam Schwartz and Sean Huang joining us from First Manhattan and First Beijing. Sean flew in from China to be here. Adam Schwartz is the Chief Disruption Officer at First Manhattan Co., which is quite applicable for this context.

I’m hoping we will explore a few nuances: First Manhattan is transferring knowledge across geographies, applying institutional knowledge from North America into the Asian context — so understanding how First Manhattan is transferring knowledge. We also have the nuance of figuring out Asia, from a standing start — how do you unpack Asia? We are going to learn from great first-hand experience, we are very honored to have you here with us, in person.
