Rabobank International has promoted Jotdeep Singh to a newly created role as head of its renewable energy and carbon credits business in Asia. Based in Singapore, he will oversee transactions mainly in wind energy, biomass, solar and other renewables, which were worth an estimated $20 billion last year, said Rabobank.Singh previously headed the renewable and carbon business unit for Rabobank in India through subsidiary Rabo India Finance (RIF), where he was involved in transactions in renewable energy lending, carbon credits trading and related advisory work. He will continue to cover India in his new role.
"We have gathered a fair amount of experience and established a good track record over the past five years in financing renewable energies in India, and undertaking carbon transactions over the past three years," said Singh. "We will now look to significantly expand that scope."
Singh reports to Robert Jan van Zadelhoff, head of Asia at Rabobank International. Singh joined Rabobank in India in 2003 and was in charge of the corporate finance and international corporate portfolio units before driving the bank's renewable energy and carbon credits business in India.
