HSBC Singapore yesterday announced the appointment of Ian Yim as head of wealth and international, amid several other appointments this week.
Yim (pictured) has more than 20 years of experience in the banking sector and was previously HSBC's head of premier international, where he was central in shaping the bank's HNWIs strategy for Asia-Pacific.
The local wealth management arm of the global banking giant also confirmed it has appointed Alice Fok as head of customer propositions and marketing and Ranojoy Dutta as head of retail products.
Anurag Mathur, head of retail banking and wealth management, HSBC Bank (Singapore) said: "Since we embarked on our new strategy, our business has grown exponentially and, to sustain this trajectory, we need laser-like focus on delivering excellent customer service. This means generating deep customer insights, designing and delivering unique products and propositions, and having the agility to meet changing customer needs. It also requires having the right structure and people in place."
He added: "Alice, Ranojoy and Ian will add great value to the team given their deep industry knowledge and understanding of the marketplace and our clients in this region. With them on onboard, we will be in an even better position to further our ambition to grow our business in Singapore."
