The regulator alleged that the unit should have told clients about the risks associated with Lehman Brothers in the summer of 2008, and also said certain private banking clients were sold financial products that were too risky for them, a lawyer for HSBC said on Wednesday.


No. 2 Julius Baer Appoints Head of Emerging Asia

Julius Baer has appointed Angela Bow as Head Emerging Asia with immediate effect. She will lead the bank’s efforts to strengthen its wealth management franchise in the Philippine and Thai markets.

No. 4 RBS Coutts Now Under Investigation

Switzerland’s financial markets regulator Finma is now starting a probe in activities of RBS Coutts Swiss unit and its links to the Malaysian wealth unit 1MDB. Payments from the fund into accounts held in the RBS Coutts Zurich unit are under examination by the Swiss regulator.

The RBS Coutts Swiss business was recently acquired by Union Bancaire Privee (UBP). However UBP is not on the radar of FINMA as the actions took place prior to UBP’s involvement.


No. 5 Further Charges for Ex-BSI Banker

Former BSI wealth manager Yeo Jiawei who is involved in a probe in 1MDB has been slapped with three additional charges.

The three new charges include cheating BSI Bank by dishonest concealment, transferring S$500K, which represented his benefit from cheating and perverting the course of justice. This means the total charges issued against him are up to six.


No.6 Regional CFO for UBS Asia Pacific Leaves Bank

Swiss Dagmar Maria Kamber Borens was most recently the Regional Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for UBS Asia Pacific based in Singapore. She has held that role since September 2012.

The departure is a bitter blow for the bank, as she has spent her entire professional career with UBS and was hailed as a “flagship woman” in the industry.
