Banking group Standard Chartered and graduate business school Instead have launched the Standard Chartered-Insead Wealth Academy.

It will be a multi-year wealth management global education programme for the bank’s relationship managers and wealth specialists.

The programme aims to upskill the bank’s relationship teams and will commence with its first cohort of relationship managers and wealth specialists in Singapore and Hong Kong in early December 2021. It will extend to teams in other markets over time.

The academy comprises a three-part journey – diploma, graduation and masters.

Progressive career path

Raymond Ang, global head of affluent clients at Standard Chartered, said: “With growing affluence in the markets where we operate, clients are more discerning and demanding better service from their banks. A highly competent and experienced relationship team allows Standard Chartered to deliver a differentiated experience to our clients.

“We believe in the upskilling and holistic development of our relationship teams and the wealth academy is our commitment to their career development and charting an attractive and progressive career path for them.”

Sameer Hasija, Insead dean of executive education and professor of technology and operations management, added: “At Insead Executive Education, our vision is to train, motivate and inspire the executives who can make their companies more productive, more efficient and to contribute more to society.
