Hong Kong, 1 June, 2010 – Clariden Leu, one of Switzerland’s leading private banks, is further expanding its position in the Asia market with senior appointments in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Matthew Man as Director, Senior Investment Advisor; Shirley Yap as Director, Head of Wealth Management Solutions; Helen Li has joined Clariden Leu as Senior Vice-President, Wealth
Management Solutions; and Christy Cheung as Head of Business and Operational Risk Management. These latest moves underpin Clariden Leu’s position as a premium Swiss wealth
management institution in Asia.

“We are extremely focused on the type of people we want at Clariden Leu and are very excited by the latest additions to the team. Each of them are well-respected by their peers in the industry and bring significant experience to support our growth strategy in North Asia,” says Jimmy Lee, CEO,  Asia.

Matthew Man will start this month and will be working closely with relationship managers to deliver the full range of investment solutions to clients in Hong Kong. Prior to Clariden Leu, he
served as Director, Investment Advisor for Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management.

Shirley Yap joined in April to lead Clariden Leu’s wealth management solution team in Hong Kong. Together with Helen, she works closely with relationship managers to provide clients with effective wealth planning solutions which address their personal, estate and succession planning needs.

Previously, Shirley held senior positions in Deutsche Bank Hong Kong, Prudential Bache Securities Asia-Pacific and Citigroup N.A.

Both Shirley and Matthew will report directly to Andrea Carl, Head of Product and Services Asia who is based in Singapore.

Helen Li joined Clariden Leu in February this year and reports to Shirley Yap. In her role, she covers wealth planning with a strong focus on the structuring of solutions to meet clients’ wealth transfer needs. Previously, she worked for organisations such as Deutsche Bank Hong Kong and Matheson Trust.

Christy Cheung joins this month to oversee the Business and Operational Risk Management in Hong Kong. In this role, she is responsible for identifying and mitigating business and operational risks and will report directly to Angeline Kiang, Head of Business and Operational Risk Management, also based in Singapore. Previously, Christy worked for HSBC, RBS Coutts, Credit Lyonnais Securities, HK Stock Exchange and Deloitte Touche.

In addition to the four new hires for North Asia, Clariden Leu has recently also appointed three more seasoned Singapore-based relationship managers, with over 20 years experience in South East Asia each: Alex Lau and Sundar Ramani who joined from HSBC Private Bank and Nikita Rossinsky who was previously with Societe Generale.
