Following the recent acquisition of a majority stake in the Australian financial services provider Shaw and Partners, EFG has appointed veteran private banker Angela Bow as the new Deputy Head of the Asia Pacific Region based in Hong Kong.

In her new role, Bow will work together with the existing management team to drive EFG’s growth ambitions for the Private Banking business in Asia Pacific with a focus on further enhancing the overall client experience in Investment Solutions and Wealth Solutions, and increasing EFG’s market penetration in dynamic key markets. She will report to Albert Chiu, Head of Asia Pacific Region, and will work closely with the CEOs, the Heads of Private Banking and the Investment Solutions teams at EFG in Hong Kong and Singapore. She will become a member of the Asia Pacific Business Committee. 

Bow is joining EFG from Bank Julius Baer, where her last position was as Managing Director and Head of Japan, Emerging Asia and Intermediaries from May 2016 to November 2018. Prior to that, she was Deputy Head of Japan and Emerging Asia in addition to her role as Market Group Head of Philippines at Credit Suisse from 2011 to 2016. Bow worked for over 18 years at UBS Wealth Management as an UHNW banker and held various managerial positions in New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo. Earlier, she also worked as an Investment Counsellor at Citibank Private Bank in Geneva. Bow has extensive experience in the private banking sector and a proven ability to reshape and integrate businesses with a focus on strategic planning and development. She is a Swiss and American citizen and a graduate of Barnard College at Columbia University with a degree in Political Economy. 

Albert Chiu, Head of Asia Pacific Region at EFG International, says: “We are very pleased to welcome Angela Bow to EFG. With her global experience in the financial sector, and her extensive knowledge of the private banking industry in Asia in particular, I am convinced that she will make a significant contribution to sustainably growing and developing our business in Asia, which is a strategic growth region for EFG.”
