BOS in HK poaches three execs from rivals

Bank of Singapore has plucked executives from LGT, UBS and BNPP Wealth for Greater China roles.

Based in Hong Kong, the new hires are Phonda Chan and Anne Song, both with the title of managing director and market head, and Jacqueline Lee, executive director and the branch’s head of risk, according to a statement from the bank.

The three will report to Derrick Tan, chief executive of the Hong Kong branch and global market head for Greater China and North Asia.

Chan, who will lead a team of relationship managers in Hong Kong was previously a managing director at Abn Amro, which was bought by LGT in 2017. According to the statement, at Abn Amro Chan was in charge of a team of relationship managers serving ultra-high and high net worth clients in the Greater China region.

Song, who will focus on the offshore Taiwan market, will lead a team of relationship managers to develop and maintain client relationships. She was previously a managing director and country team head of Taiwan at UBS Wealth Management.

Lee, the branch’s head of risk management, joined BOS in May from BNPP Wealth Management, where she worked in credit risk management.

In the statement, the bank said its assets under management from Greater China grew 20% in the last 12 months to 31 March, though it did not provide a dollar figure.
