Head of global private banking for Southeast Asia exits HSBC
HSBC’s head of global private banking for Southeast Asia Sandeep Sharma, who was responsible for driving and executing HSBC’s strategy for private banking across the region, has now left the bank.
Based in Singapore, he reported to HSBC Singapore’s CEO, Tony Cripps and regional head of global private banking, Asia-Pacific, Siew Meng Tan.
Singapore has always been a priority market and HSBC sees great opportunity for private banking in South East Asia, the company said. HSBC has identified his successor and will share the announcement soon.
Sandeep Sharma joined the HSBC Group in 2010 as business head for the Indian subcontinent team. He served as co-head of global private banking for Southeast Asia along with Rob Ioannou since his appointment in 2014.
Prior to this, he held senior positions at Barclays’ wealth and investment management business in Singapore, subsequently acquired by Bank of Singapore (in November 2016) and the private banking division of Société Générale.
