StanChart hires senior private bankers

StanChart hires senior private bankers

Standard Chartered Private Bank said it has appointed Michelle Ho as managing director for Greater China and North Asia.

Ho brings 25 years of banking experience, with a keen focus on private banking in the North Asia region, including leadership roles in DBS Private Bank, and team head at HSBC Private Bank and Barclays. She was most recently managing director and team leader at the Bank of Singapore.

StanChart has also appointed Demir Avigdor as managing director and market head for Africa and Europe. Based in London, Avigdor will report to Ian Gibson, who is the managing director and regional head for Africa, Middle East, and Europe.

Since the last quarter of 2016, the private bank has been on a hiring spree, massively bulking up its North Asia team as it looks to capture wealth from China. So far, about 50 experienced bankers and advisors have joined the firm.

Last week, Jack Wu and Pauline Ko joined the bank in the capacity of managing directors, market heads - reporting to Vivian Chan, regional private banking head for Greater China and North Asia.
