Private Bank Appoints Executive Director For Investment Advisory Role

Published by Wealth Briefing Asia – 23rd March 2017

A senior figure in Asia’s private banking world has taken up a Hong Kong-based role for Standard Chartered, having previously worked at Bank of Singapore, this publication can exclusively reveal today. 

Chris Tang has joined Standard Chartered as executive director, investment advisory, private banking, effective as of 17 March, the London-listed lender, which earns the bulk of its revenues outside the UK, told this publication.

In his role, Tang reports to Barry Chan, head of investment advisory, private banking, Hong Kong.

A figure in the industry for more than 20 years, working in client advisory and investment, Tang has worked at financial institutions including Credit Suisse Private Bank, Citi Private and HSBC Private Bank. He also has a background in multi-asset investment, and foreign exchange and equity products.

Most recently, Tang was the head of active advisory North Asia in Bank of Singapore, and prior to that, Barclays.

Earlier this week, this publication exclusively reported that Chris Mueller stepped down from his role at Standard Chartered’s private bank as global head of investment advisory. He was based in Singapore for the role. Mueller is not being replaced because the reporting structure at the bank has changed, making his old position redundant.
