Northern Trust hires Pamela Yuen as North Asian sales director


Northern Trust has appointed Pamela Yuen as North Asian sales director for its corporate and institutional services business unit.

Based in the Hong Kong office, Yuen will be responsible for business development in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Korea.

She comes to Northern Trust with more than 15 years’ experience in asset servicing, most recently as head of relationship management, Asia Pacific for HSBC.

As the senior executive responsible for expanding and developing business in the North Asia region, Yuen reports to Rohan Singh, head of asset servicing sales in Asia Pacific.

"Pamela has an established track record in guiding institutional investors on global custody matters, as they increasingly allocate assets to foreign currency markets," Singh says. "With her experience in operations, relationship management and consulting in North Asia, Pamela will provide strong leadership for spearheading Northern Trust’s continued growth and focus in developing the region."

Since 2006, Yuen has been at HSBC, as deputy head of sales for Asia Pacific and then head of relationship management, Asia Pacific, where she led business development in China. Her particular areas of responsibilities were sovereign wealth funds and the qualified domestic institutional investor segment.

Prior to that, she was head of operations for First State Investments in Hong Kong, responsible for re-engineering the operating model and integrating overseas offices.

She started her career at HSBC with additional stints at Citibank, Deutsche Bank, and ABN Amro Asset Management over the years.

"Northern Trust is a premier provider of specialised global custody solutions to sovereign wealth funds, government pension funds and key domestic institutional investors, and I am excited to join their team in the Asia Pacific region," Yuen says. "I look forward to expanding Northern Trust’s presence and building on our existing relationships in the North Asian region."
