Commenting on the appointment, Alan Turner, Head of Commercial Banking HSBC Singapore, said: “Despite all economic factors, Singapore’s allure as a wealth and investment hub has not waned and as it continues to grow, so will the ecosystem surrounding it. Leveraging Amanda’s proven experience combined with HSBC’s global network and holistic product offering, we are well placed to support the complex and often varying needs of NBFIs.”
