Credit Suisse hires from Julius Baer

Credit Suisse hires from Julius Baer

Credit Suisse Private Banking has appointed David Lim as vice chairman for Southeast Asia, effective 7 May.

Based in Singapore, he will report to Benjamin Cavalli, head private banking Southeast Asia and CEO Singapore.

Lim has close to 30 years of banking experience with private clients and institutional businesses.

As vice chairman, he will be expected to deepen relationships with clients and stakeholders, provide advice on Credit Suisse’s products and services and develop and mentor new talent.

The industry veteran is re-joining the Swiss banking group from Julius Baer, where he also held the role of vice chairman Southeast Asia since 2016. Lim was promoted to the role from head private banking South East Asia and branch manager Singapore.

He joined Julius Baer as head of investment finance of GAM Holding AG in 2006, before the two companies split in 2009.

Prior to that, the executive worked at Credit Suisse as head of solution partners, leading the business that served ultra-high net worth clients across their private investments and capital solutions. He first joined Credit Suisse in 1999.

Credit Suisse Private Banking has been making a push to capture a bigger share of ultra-high net worth wallets in the Southeast Asia region, working closely with the investment banking division to offer services such as advisory, underwriting and financing to clients.
