“Financial institutions in Greater China have emerged as strong investors with huge liquidity. They are increasingly demanding structured and cross-border products. Helen’s in-depth segment expertise will help us to meet these growing demands,” said Alok Kochhar, regional head, financial institutions.

Pun previously worked at ABN Amro, where she headed the Greater China financial institutions sector, focusing on corporate finance and global market products. She has also held roles at JP Morgan Chase and Citibank.

Pun added that the bank will also look to broaden its institutional client coverage for asset management products.
