Swiss private banking group Julius Baer has appointed Vicki Lee as its new group head for Greater China, based in Hong Kong.
Reporting to David Shick, the head of private banking for Greater China, Lee will be responsible for growing and strengthening the bank’s franchise in the Greater China market.
Lee joins from UBS Wealth Management, where she had worked since 2006. Her last held position was country team head for the Chinese market.
Prior to that, Lee held senior wealth management roles at HSBC and Standard Chartered Bank.
Commenting on the hire, Shick said: ‘Greater China is one of the highest growth regions and is a very important market for Bank Julius Baer. The demand for wealth services is growing rapidly. We are delighted to have Vicki joining us as we continue to grow our business in the region.’
Last December, Julius Baer hired Chew Mun-Yew as its Taiwan head, based in Singapore, and reporting to Shick.
Chew also comes from UBS, where his last held position was Taiwan country head.
