Employer of the Year

Albert Chiu

Executive chairman, Asia Pacific

We are thrilled to have won the Employer of the Year award. Our people strategy is at the heart of our organisation, and winning this award is the best vindication that we recognise our staff as one of our key pillars for growth, and of our determination to become the employer of choice in this competitive market.

This outstanding achievement is a testament to the incredible work the entire Asia Pacific team has collectively accomplished over the past years, bringing our people‘s strategy to life.

This achievement also highlights our successful strategy to establish EFG as an employer of choice with our ongoing efforts to attract, retain, and develop top talent, while ensuring that EFG remains a workplace where individuals can thrive and reach their full potential.

What we said

“EFG’s success in luring top talent from across the Asia Pacific private banking industry – from junior hires to veteran RMs and CEOs – is a testament to the pure-play’s commitment to developing people, its values-based culture and efforts to create a rewarding and motivating workplace,” said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

“Those efforts to make EFG an employer of choice are clearly paying dividends. In 2023 in Asia Pacific, the bank hired 30 new RMs and 50 other staff members. Those hires ranged from a Credit Suisse veteran as its new CEO for Hong Kong, to a seasoned roster of senior RMs, to graduates from the region’s top universities.

“Among the initiatives that help EFG to stand out from the pack are flexible working policies, succession planning that fosters internal career advancement, an active focus on learning and upskilling employees, and dedicated schemes focusing on ESG and sustainability.

“For these reasons and more, Asian Private Banker is proud to award EFG the accolade of Employer of the Year at the Awards for Distinction 2023.”
