Widjaja, who assumed her role on 19 February, is responsible for leading a team of six covering the region, which include team head David Ng, relationship managers Katherine Lok and Florence Tee and investment advisor Lee Chin Kit, all of whom joined in the past month.

Widjaja will report to Kin-Mun Kwong, head of wealth management coverage for Southeast Asia.

Before joining the bank, she was at HSBC Private Bank in Singapore in the role of managing director and market head for Indonesia. She had been with HSBC since 1999. Prior to that, she was with Merrill Lynch Singapore, Banque Indosuez Indonesia and American Express Bank Indonesia.

This is the third team hire under Kwong’s supervision that is dedicated to covering clients in the Southeast Asian market, according to the statement. In December, the bank hired six Singapore-based relationship managers led by Jonathan Ng and Gregory Goh.

The bank’s wealth management division has made more than 60 hires in Asia-Pacific in the past six months.

This year alone, the bank has poached professionals from Credit Suisse, Nomura, UBP and BSI for various roles.
