As part of its global reorganization, Citi has named new leaders for its wealth management business in Asia, finews.asia has learned.

Last week, Citi announced a global reorganization of its management structure across business divisions and geographies. Moving forward, the structure will include five divisions at the top (services, markets, banking, wealth management and US personal banking) alongside two geographies (North America and international).

The wealth management business in Asia will continue to operate out of the Hong Kong and Singapore hubs, led by Vicky Kong as head of wealth for North Asia and Australia as well as Shyam Sambamurthy as head of wealth for South Asia, sources told finews.asia. The two will functionally report to Andy Sieg, who will become Citi’s head of wealth on September 27.

Cluster Heads

After the reorganization, there will be seven geographical clusters, including three in Asia. They are Latin America, Europe, UK, the Middle East and Africa, South Asia, North Asia and Australia as well as Japan.

Geographically, Kong reports to ex-global wealth head Angel Ng, who has been renamed as head of North Asia and Australia cluster and banking head. Sambamurthy reports to South Asia cluster and banking head Amol Gupte. The Japan cluster will be led by Marc Luet.

Ng, Gupte and Luet report to head of international Ernesto Torres Cantú. Former APAC head Peter Babej will become interim head of banking until his retirement in 2024.

When contacted, a spokesperson for the bank confirmed the changes.

      The world’s preeminent Private Banks and Wealth Managers are demonstrating a committed drive in innovation, advisory, new products and services to meet the sophisticated needs of their clients.

      COVID-19
      Amid economic activity revival on the back of the Covid-19 vaccine program, organisations moving from business continuity plans to stable working environments, together with the slightest improvement in unemployment numbers, forced the world to adjust to new realities. Coming to terms with the “new normal”, global investors are now on the look-out for attractive and stable investment opportunities.

      Needs of Private Wealth customers and families worldwide have drastically changed due to the pandemic and banks have had to accelerate efforts to deploy a multi-channel service strategy and safeguard clients’ businesses and wealth against negative impacts of economic uncertainly.

      The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
