The hiring rush to manage the burgeoning wealth being created in North Asia continues at pace with Switzerland's second largest bank confirming more appointments.  

In a note to the bank said that Stella Kong and Edwin Lim have now joined Credit Suisse as Market Group Heads for China and Taiwan, respectively. Kong and Lim, both based in Hong Kong, will join existing Market Group Heads Alex Ng and Orchid Yuan in leading the China and Taiwan franchises.

Both have more than 30 years’ experience in senior frontline leadership roles covering Greater China markets with major financial institutions.

Greater China Expertise

Edwin Lim was a Managing Director and Market Manager for Northeast Asia at J.P. Morgan Private Bank, where he was responsible for leading relationship management teams across Hong Kong and Singapore, delivering private banking services for high-net-worth individuals in Greater China and the Philippines.

Prior to this, he was a Managing Director and Head of North Asia and Greater China at DBS Private Bank, before which he headed the desk for Taiwan and China in Credit Suisse’s Private Banking business in Hong Kong for eight years.

Management Structure Aligned

Kong joins Credit Suisse from Standard Chartered, where she was the Deputy Regional Head of Private Banking, Greater China and North Asia. She developed the China team, increasing the number of relationship managers and the team’s asset base more than 15-fold in six years.

Prior to that, she was Vice Chairman of China at Sarasin Rabo Investment Management, Head of Private Banking China and North Asia at ABN Amro, and Head of the Taiwan market at both Deutsche Bank and UBS.

Following the confirmation of the new hires the new structure means the China market is led by Market Group Heads Alex Ng and Stella Kong, the Taiwan market is led by Market Group Heads Orchid Yuan and Edwin Lim and the Hong Kong market is led by Market Group Heads Rickie Chan and Eddy Sze
