Das will be responsible for building and growing the funds and discretionary portfolio management businesses.
Standard Chartered has appointed Chandrima Das as global head, managed investments, subject to regulatory approval.
Das will be based in Singapore when she joins the bank on 5 April, and will report to Marc Van de Walle, global head, wealth management.
She will be responsible for building and growing the funds and discretionary portfolio management businesses.
Das has more than two decades of experience in the banking and asset management industry in Asia and Europe. Besides having had leadership roles in financial institutions such as Bank of Singapore, ING, Prudential and most recently Grab, she is also the co-founder of Bento, an investment advisor platform with robotic and human components.
“In the past five years, the shift to digital across industries has been exhilarating and this shift is permanent. With the 2020s looking set to be the decade of the consumer, innovation is imminent. I am grateful for the opportunity to chart a tech-led path for managed investments at Standard Chartered Bank to further strengthen its right to win in the affluent segment,” Das said.
The UK-listed bank, which earns the bulk of its revenues in Asia, Africa and the Indian sub-continent, announced 2020 results a few days ago.
