Bank of Singapore (BOS) has appointed Lim Leong Guan as its new global head of products, according to a statement from the firm. Lim, who assumed his role yesterday, will also concurrently be the head of group wealth products at OCBC Bank, Bank of Singapore’s parent company.
Lim replaced Marc van de Walle, who has left the firm to join Standard Chartered as its global head of wealth management.
In his new role, Singapore-based Lim will lead BOS’ product strategy and will be responsible for the expansion of the bank’s offerings across key areas, such as investment research and strategy, portfolio management, lending structuring and advisory and wealth planning and trust, according to a BOS spokeswoman. He will report to Bahren Shaari, BOS’ CEO.
Before Bank of Singapore, Lim was at UBS Wealth Management, where he was head of wealth planning for Asia-Pacific and head of investment products and services for Singapore, the statement said. He has been with the firm for 25 years.
FSA sought more information from UBS Wealth, but the firm was not able to comment in time for publication whether it has found a replacement for Lim.
