EFG International makes senior appointment in Asia
EFG International has appointed Alvin Ma as head of emerging wealth, based in Hong Kong, effective 24 February 2014.
Ma will focus on building up EFG International's business in North Asia outside of its well established markets of Hong Kong and Taipei. In particular, he will play a key role in relation to EFG International's future development in China.
Ma was previously general manager, responsible for private banking, at China CITIC Bank International, which he joined in 2010. Prior to this, he was a senior private banker at EFG International. He also worked at Credit Suisse, UBS, and Standard Chartered Bank.
Ma is a guest lecturer at numerous institutions, including the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Institute of Professional Education and Knowledge, the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce, and the Hong Kong Management Association.
Albert Chiu, chief executive, EFG International, Asia, says: "EFG has ambitious plans for Asia, and I am excited that Alvin Ma has decided to rejoin us. He brings specific experience of the Chinese market, and is proven both as a private banker and as a general manager of an international private banking business. I have no doubt that Alvin can make a major contribution to our future development."
Ma says: "It is good to be returning to EFG in this exciting new role. I know from experience that this is a dynamic business, well placed to compete. I look forward to using all my experience to help EFG capitalise on the significant opportunities that exist in China and other emerging wealth markets in the region."
