The British based bank HSBC has named another global head this time in Sydney. The bank forecasts that 80 percent of Australia’s exports will land on Asian shores by 2020.

Hamish Kelly has been named by HSBC as its head of global banking Australia, responsible for leading the coverage of large corporate, multinational, financial and government clients.

Prior to joining HSBC in 2013 Kelly worked for Goldman Sachs where he was the Head of the Structured/FIG Capital, Financing Group. He also worked with Deutsche Bank and local bank Westpac. 

«Under Hamish’s leadership, global banking will play an increasingly pivotal role in connecting our clients to the cross-border business and investment opportunities that are rising from the continued globalisation of the Australian economy,» said Tony Cripps HSBC Chief Executive for Australia. 

Kelly succeeds Chris Russell, who has relocated to Auckland to become HSBC’s chief executive for New Zealand.
