Julius Baer has made a series of senior appointments in Singapore.
Chin Lit Yee has been appointed head of southeast Asia. A seasoned banker with over 30 years of wealth management experience, Yee was most recently group head of southeast Asia.
Prior to joining Julius Baer in 2015, he worked at Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan. He will report to Jimmy Lee, head of Asia Pacific.
“The appointment of Chin Lit to head southeast Asia showcases his exceptional leadership and deep understanding of the region. He is an accomplished leader, renowned for his strategic vision and ability to build high-performing teams,” said Lee.
“I look forward to steering Julius Baer southeast Asia towards greater heights, further building on our success in the region,” said Yee.
Meanwhile, Julius Baer has also appointed Yee Kim Tan as Singapore branch manager, reporting to Lee.
This new responsibility supplements his current roles as Greater China (Singapore) location head and group head. In his expanded position, he will oversee the Singapore branch’s daily operations, risk controls and governance.
“Yee Kim has played a crucial role in the success of our Hong Kong and Singapore branches, and we are delighted to appoint him to branch manager,” said Lee. “His leadership skills, expertise, and business knowledge make him the ideal candidate to lead the Singapore office and drive growth in the region.”
Finally, Kevin Tay, a seasoned banker who most recently served as head of wealth planning and family office services for Singapore, will assume Yee’s previous role as group head of southeast Asia and will report to Yee in his new role as head of southeast Asia.
All appointments are effective 13 April.
