A private banking house has tapped a rival wealth management firm to fill the newly-created role of head of Southeast Asia private banking.
Falcon Private Bank has appointed Febby Avianto to the newly created, Singapore-based role of head of private banking for Asia. He joins from RBC Wealth Management.
At RBC, Avianto held the role of market head for Southeast Asia; his 20-year career in the sector has encompassed roles at Citi Private Banking, UBS and Bank Sarasin.
"This appointment completes our executive management team in Asia and strongly underpins our commitment to this important market. Febby will have a strong hand in driving the bank's growth in the region. And he will help us fulfil our ambition of becoming the leading Swiss private bank with access and expertise in the emerging markets,” Erich Pfister, global head of private banking at Falcon, said.
Falcon Private Bank is a Swiss private bank with headquarters in Zurich and branches and representative offices in Geneva, London, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
