HSBC creates EMEA role for Andy Clark
HSBC Global Asset Management has named Andy Clark as head of wholesale for EMEA, a role created as part of the bank’s move to grow across the region.
Clark will still cover his previous role as wholesale director for UK and MENA, which he has held since joining the firm in March 2007
In his new position, Clark will remain based in London and will report to Rudolf Apenbrink, CEO for EMEA. Apenbrink has occupied this role since returning to Europe in September last year. He was previously CEO of HSBC Global Asset Management’s Asia Pacific Operation, a position he held for three years.
Matteo Pardi has been appointed as head of wholesale of Continental Europe and will report to Clark.
Based in France, Pardi was previously head of Southern Europe for the firm, after joining 10 years ago.
HSBC plans to bolster its presence in the EMEA region by focusing on emerging markets and lifestyle solutions.
Apenbrink says: “Both emerging market and lifestyle driven products are likely to be in higher demand and HSBC is well positioned to capture this growing popularity due to our extensive global footprint and vast expertise in emerging markets.
“This high calibre team is now in place to ensure we are best positioned to capture this opportunity and deliver world class capabilities and services to all clients across this region.”
