HSBC names Jeffrey Yap as head of investments and wealth solutions for SEA

Yap has served as interim head since November last year.

HSBC has appointed Jeffrey Yap as head of investments and wealth solutions, Southeast Asia (IWS SEA), effective immediately.

Yap will be based in Singapore and is tasked with bringing world-class, differentiated wealth solutions, platforms and insights to HSBC’s Singapore and Southeast Asia clients across the full continuum – from mass affluent to ultra-high net worth, the bank said.

Prior to his new role, Yap served as head of investments and products group Singapore in 2020, before assuming the role of interim head of IWS SEA in November 2021. 

He reports to Stefan Lecher, regional head of investments and wealth solutions, Asia Pacific; and Anurag Mathur, head of wealth and personal banking Singapore.

Yap has over 25 years of experience working in global financial markets. He joined HSBC in 2017 as Global Private Banking’s regional head of fixed income, before taking on the role of regional head of fixed income, currency and commodities.
