McGregor Boyall expands Singapore offering into private banking & wealth management
Heading up the new division is Anita Sim, who has more than 15 years experience in the HR and Executive Search industry, having spent her earlier years working with several international banks.
Given McGregor Boyall’s strong track record in the Financial Services sector, the Private Banking and Wealth Management coverage will serve as an extension of their service offering in providing a one stop solution from bankers and advisory to the middle and support functions.
“There has been a constant demand from our clients for candidates with a strong track record in revenues, product advisory and client-facing capabilities” said Luke Archer, Managing Director of McGregor Boyall Asia Pac, adding “we are delighted that Anita has joined us to establish this new Practice and I believe this is where we will really see our value-add in being able to provide these groups of candidates to serve our clients’ hiring needs.”
Commenting on her appointment Anita said “I am thrilled to have joined such an established business as McGregor Boyall at an exciting time for the private banking and wealth management industry in the Asia Pacific region.”
She added “the Asia market has seen lots of volatility in recent months due to the devaluation of the Chinese Yuan currency uncertainties around the emerging market economies as well as the falling prices of commodities meaning we have seen cautious hiring in certain sectors, with some moving towards contract roles. However in the banking sector, the private banking and wealth space are still seeing strong hiring trends, particularly in client-facing roles with P&L accountability and areas such as compliance”.
