    You could also try some of the ERM companies directly such as Raffles FO. I know they are rapidly expanding, i have a non chinese speaking aussie mate there.

    I have been in the buy side here for 9 years now (on HR/Admin side) and it's definitely getting tougher and tougher for non mandarin speakers to secure a job. For middle and back office, they only hire local people as Cantonese/Mandarin is essential for the job. For front office, the only non Chinese new hires that I have noticed are generally other Asians like Indians, Japanese or Korean. If you don't mind the working environment, Chinese buy side firms may be a possibility as they often like to hire Caucasians to be more multicultural. Good luck with the hunt!
