HSBC Private Banking has appointed two senior executives to new roles in the Asia-Pacific region – Jeffrey Yap as head of investment services and product solutions (ISPS), Southeast Asia, and Adam Lau as regional head of fixed income, currencies and commodity (FICC), Asia-Pacific.

Yap will transition from his current role as regional head of FICC, Asia-Pacific, and will lead the ISPS team in Southeast Asia for HSBC Private Banking, providing financial advisory to high-net-worth clients in the region. He joined HSBC in 2017 as regional head of fixed income, Asia-Pacific, from Pacific Alliance Group, where he was managing director, responsible for public fixed-income investments.

Lau, in addition to his role as head of FICC, Asia-Pacific, will take up a newly created position as regional head of markets solutions, Asia-Pacific. Lau, previously regional head of equities and structured Products, Asia-Pacific, will expand his responsibilities to oversee equities, structured products, fixed income, currencies and commodities in Asia.

With more than 20 years of financial markets experience, Lau joined HSBC in 2018 from Natixis where he was head of Greater China for equity solutions sales. Prior to that, he worked at Deutsche Bank as head of Greater China for private banking and retail sales, and at JPMorgan as a structured products marketer.

Philip Kunz, head of HSBC private banking, Southeast Asia, says: “Under the leadership of both Yap and Lau, HSBC private banking will build on our strong momentum and expand and enhance our range of products and services, to meet our clients’ wealth needs.”
