HSBC further strengthens core retail banking and wealth management team
HSBC Singapore has announced the expansion of its core retail banking and wealth management team with four new appointments, all of which are newly created roles. The expansion reflects HSBC Singapore’s commitment to growing its retail banking and wealth management business given Singapore’s importance as an international business and wealth hub. Singapore remains one of the fastest growing offshore centres globally given its status as the preferred booking centres for regional customers and the strong economic growth in Asia-Pacific.
Anurag Mathur, head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management, HSBC Bank (Singapore) said: “The expanded management team will allow us to better support our growth agenda in Singapore which is a priority market under HSBC Group’s Pivot to Asia strategy. Not only will it enable us to better focus on priority areas, it also allows us to be more efficient in the deployment of our resources. I am particularly pleased that of the four new appointments, three are promoted from within which shows that our efforts to groom and develop talents are paying off.”
He added: “We are equally excited about adding greater diversity to our management team with the new female leaders joining our ranks. It is important for us to continue to build an inclusive environment where everyone can fulfill their potential. ”
