VP Bank Celebrates 10 Years in Singapore, Hires Kimmis Pun as Head of Private Banking Singapore

VP Bank celebrates 10 years in Singapore in 2018 as the bank announces the broadening of license from merchant bank to wholesale bank by July 2018, providing an expansion of services.

” VP Bank celebrates 10 years, Hires Dr Meier & Kimmis Pun, Partners with SMU “

VP Bank also announced the hiring of Kimmis Pun as Head of Private Banking Singapore, an industry veteran with more than 36 years, with effect from 15th March 2018.

Kimmis joins from Standard Chartered Private Bank, where she was the Managing Director & Market Head for Greater China.  Prior to Standard Chartered, she had held senior appointments in numerous Private Banks including BNP Paribas, UBS and HSBC.  She had also held roles as the Country Head for Preferred Banking in Bank of America,  Head of Private Banking & Syndication in Maybank and Head of Personal Financial Center in Standard Chartered.

VP Bank’s expansion strategy came as the Group’s Board of Directors had elect Dr Thomas R. Meier as the 10th member of the Board of Directors. Dr Meier was the CEO Asia for Bank Julius Baer from 2007 to 2015.

The Liechtenstein-based bank also announced a partnership with the Business Families Institute at Singapore Management University (BFI@SMU) to tap their expertise on business family-specific issues in Asia such as succession, family governance, entrepreneurship and wealth management.

In Q3 2018, VP Bank and BFI@SMU will present a panel session titled ‘Safely Ahead – Towards A Lasting Legacy beyond Wealth Transfer’ moderated by Professor Annie Koh (PhD in Finance), Singapore Management University.
