STANDARD Chartered Private Bank announces the appointment of Cedric Lizin as regional head, Asean & South Asia, private banking, subject to regulatory approval.
Lizin joins from UBS, where he was most recently head of wealth management and senior executive officer for Dubai.
He brings a depth of knowledge, including that from his previous roles as a COO and building out platforms in Asia as well as an onshore Japan business.
Lizin will be based in Singapore and report to Didier von Daeniken, global head, private banking and wealth management.
Srinivas Siripurapu, currently regional head, Asean & South Asia, and global head, global South Asia community, private banking, is leaving the bank to spend time with his family in India.
Having been with the bank for three years, Srinivas has played a pivotal role in driving the turnaround and strategic growth agenda for the private bank in the region.
His strengths in client relationships as well as leadership in enhancing frontline capability and embedding a performance culture have contributed significantly to the business.
Andrew Ho, managing director and market head, South & Southeast Asia, private banking, will take on interim responsibilities for the private banking business in the region until Lizin joins later this year.
