Dutch Private Bank Hires Team For North Asia

ABN AMRO Private Banking has bolstered its commitment to growing in North Asia with new senior hires. 

Angela Wu has been appointed managing director and market head for China, reinforcing the firm's wealth management business in the region. Wu joins from China International Capital Corporation and brings over 25 years of experience to the role. She reports to Ian Pollock, head of private banking for North Asia.

She is accompanied by Mike Sum and Angela Yuen, both senior private bankers, and Shirley Ho, assistant private banker. Wu and her team, whose partnership extends over 10 years, step in with immediate effect and will be based in Hong Kong.

Besides adding to its talent bench, ABN AMRO has also been investing in its regional growth. In 2012, the company established the Asian-based discretionary portfolio management team to offer clients the option of diversifying their wealth investments. 

Netherlands-headquartered ABN AMRO is one of the oldest foreign banks in Asia, opening its first brances in Indonesia and Singapore in 1826. It established a Hong Kong office in 1906.
