Quintet Private Bank Names New Group Chief Risk Officer

With more than 25 years of international experience, the new appointee has served as chief risk officer in many departments of HSBC.

Quintet Private Bank, parent of Brown Shipley, has appointed Christine Lynch as group chief risk officer and member of the authorised management committee, with effect from 15 January. The appointment is subject to regulatory approval.

Lynch, who is based in Luxembourg, succeeds Philip Tremble, who retired last year following more than four decades in banking.

Lynch has more than 25 years of international experience. Most recently, she served as London-based chief risk officer, wholesale and markets, and securities services, and head of enterprise risk, Europe, at HSBC. Over the course of her career, she has also served as HSBC’s regional chief risk officer for the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, and chief risk officer at HSBC Private Bank Switzerland. A UK national, she holds a BSc in financial services from the University of Manchester and a BA in modern languages from the University of Bath.

“Christine is a highly inclusive leader who brings to our firm a great breadth of experience across risk disciplines and global markets,” group CEO Chris Allen said. “As a member of our leadership team, she will make an important contribution to Quintet’s sustained growth by maintaining a sound risk-management framework, ensuring that we manage risk appropriately, reflecting the interests of all our stakeholders.”
