EFG International appoints global segment head


EFG International has recruited Amrit Uppal as managing director, head of global South Asian diaspora.

He joined on 17 June and is based in Singapore.
The global South Asian diaspora, including non-resident Indians, is a large and fast growing segment of the private banking market. It has been identified as a priority growth market, alongside Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East, Latin America, and China.
EFG International has long been active in this segment, across its international network, but the appointment of Uppal will facilitate a more coordinated approach. He will be responsible for optimising the market opportunity, encompassing recruitment, the competitiveness of the EFG offering, and business development.
Uppal has more than 14 years wealth management experience. From 2011, he was a director and team head at Barclays Wealth in Singapore. Prior to this, he worked in the UK, including as business head, Birmingham for Credit Suisse, and as a team leader at Coutts.
Uppal will be joined by two additional client relationship officers, both previously with Barclays Wealth: Rupinder Sehmi and Jagjit Matharu.
