Tan Siew Meng

regional head of HSBC Global Private Banking, Asia Pacific

We are honoured to be recognised as Best Private Bank – Asia Pacific, for the second consecutive year, demonstrating our remarkable achievements in delivering our vision to become Asia’s leading international wealth manager, and our commitment to place clients at the centre of everything we do.

This client-centricity means we are focused on ensuring that every client receives the best ideas, advice, solutions, and services tailored to their unique circumstances, opening up a world of opportunity every day. And we are committed to bringing the best of HSBC to clients, whose needs are increasingly international and span the personal and business spheres.

Despite the turbulence and complexities of 2022, we focused on helping clients navigate the investment landscape, enabling them to both manage risks and capture opportunities. And we remained steadfastly committed to investing in our people, platforms, digital capabilities and product offerings, all of which are critical enablers for us to seamlessly provide the best-in-class client experience to the entire wealth continuum.

Each year, we continue to build on our solid momentum, harness HSBC Group’s strengths and enhance our capabilities to match the trust that clients have placed in us to be their partner of choice as their needs and the aspirations of their families and businesses evolve.

What was behind the judges’ decision?

  • Robust expansion and increased penetration of Asian private banking franchise into fast-growing markets, including onshore mainland China, Taiwan and Thailand
  • Deeper penetration into key UHNW client segment, including key hires and the roll-out of bespoke solutions across lending, mandates and family office advisory
  • Strong evidence of increased and effective collaboration across HSBC group and client continuum, demonstrated by a significant rise in client referrals, including from commercial, global and retail banks
  • Transformative developments in digital technology that have markedly boosted client experience, including the launch of digital discretionary portfolio management (DPM) in the region and online trading of structured products

What we said

HSBC Global Private Banking’s victory in eight categories at the 2022 Asian Private Banker Awards for Distinction is a testament to the strength and depth of the bank’s private wealth management in Asia-Pacific, said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

In the view of APB’s expert judging panel, HSBC Global Private Banking has profoundly and continuously developed its capabilities across geographic markets, asset classes, product platforms and the entire wealth continuum. From digital innovation, to client experience, to credit, HSBC Global Private Banking is a leader in providing end-to-end services to U/HNWIs in Asia-Pacific. This was reflected in HSBC Global Private Banking winning the much-coveted, flagship Best Private Bank – Asia Pacific award for the second year running. APB would like to congratulate everyone at HSBC Global Private Banking on this richly deserved accolade.
