BNP Paribas WM names Edmund Shing as CIO

BNP Paribas Wealth Management has promoted global head of equity and derivative strategy Edmund Shing to CIO. 

Shing, who has served in his current role since 2015, will be responsible for leading BNPP WM's investment strategy, and will continue to make recommendations and themes with "actionable advice" for clients, the Paris-based firm said.

He replaces Florent Bronès, who has joined an expertise-sharing project with a charitable organisation ahead of his retirement.

With over 21 years of experience in financial markets, Shing previously served as a global equity portfolio manager at BCS Asset Management and head of European equity strategy at Barclays Capital.

BNPP WM said: "In this time of change, [Shing's] expertise in following and anticipating markets is a true value added for both customers and those at wealth management who serve them."
