NEW YORK, NY, January 4, 2023 – MUFG Investor Services, an industry leader in asset servicing, administration, banking and fund financing for global investment firms, today announced that Fi Dinh has been appointed Head of Fund Finance for the Asia Pacific  (APAC) Region, signaling plans for continued growth in the region.

An experienced senior executive and team leader, Dinh joins MUFG Investor Services from Citi Private Bank, where she led a portfolio of private equity fund finance relationships and directed the ESG-linked financing initiative for the business globally. In her new role, Dinh will focus on expanding the fund financing business in APAC and supporting the overall growth of the global asset servicing and fund administration business.

“We’re pleased to welcome Fi to our team as Head of Fund Finance, APAC Region,” said John Sergides, CEO of MUFG Investor Services. “Fi brings extensive experience across a wide range of fund financing roles which will be key to advancing our APAC growth strategy. As the industry experiences a liquidity squeeze, banks across the globe are scaling down the fund financing space due to capital constraints. Given we have a strong and stable balance sheet, we’re committed to supporting fund financing needs across the broader alternatives market.”

Previously, Dinh spent three years setting up and leading ING’s Fund Finance & Insurance Finance APAC business, based in Singapore. Prior to that, Dinh spent nearly a decade at Barclays in London and Dubai, where she was a Director in the Financial Institutions Group and helped build a successful private equity coverage franchise supporting financial sponsors and alternative asset managers in EMEA and the US. Her earlier banking career spans across credit analysis, operational risk and project management in the investment banking and corporate banking divisions.

Dinh was recognized in The Drawdown’s ‘Most Influential Fund Finance Experts of 2022’ globally and is the only Asia-based practitioner included on this list. She serves as co-chair of the Women in Fund Finance, APAC. Prior to her career in banking, Dinh served on several governmental nation branding projects, including media relations, promoting foreign direct investment and crisis management.  Dinh also sits on the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s Financial Centre Advisory Panel – Green Finance working group for the fund management industry.

“MUFG Investor Services’ track record for maintaining a high client retention rate is a testament to our unwavering dedication to our clients, their challenges and potential,” said Dinh.  “This combined with MUFG being one of the largest and most stable financial institutions in the world is a winning formula in helping our clients accelerate growth in an increasingly competitive marketplace and I am thrilled to be a part of the team.”

Dinh holds a BA (Hons) in Public Relations from University of the Arts London, a Fine Arts Diploma from Central Saint Martin College of Arts, and a Professional Diploma in Banking Practice & Management from the London Institute of Banking & Finance. She is also fluent in Vietnamese and speaks intermediate Spanish.
