Credit Suisse Hires Banker in China Onshore Private Bank
Credit Suisse has hired Ex-RBS banker Rick Meng as head of China onshore private banking. The hiring is part of Credit Suisse’s strategy to develop China onshore wealth management business by leveraging on its Shanghai branch and Hong Kong private banking platform.
The bank’s onshore wealth management business will seek to tap ultra-high networth clients in China, and would use its securities and asset management joint ventures to expand the business.
