HSBC Singapore has appointed Priya Kini as its head of commercial banking, effective January 1 2024, with responsibility for driving further growth and deepening client relationships across the commercial banking business in Singapore.

Kini – who succeeds Regina Lee who has been appointed as the head of commercial banking at Hang Seng Bank  was appointed to her current role as head of global banking for Singapore in February 2019 where she was responsible for leading coverage and financing solutions for the bank’s major public, corporate and institutional clients.

She joined HSBC in 2001 and has held various leadership positions in key markets, including Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK and India.

Kini will report to Wong Kee Joo, chief executive officer, HSBC Singapore, and Amanda Murphy, head of commercial banking, South and Southeast Asia, HSBC.

“Singapore continues to be a key hub for international businesses to expand into the region,” Wong says. “Similarly, local businesses are increasingly looking outwards for growth opportunities. Kini’s extensive global banking experience and strong track record in driving business growth will enable us to further accelerate our strategy, which is built on Singapore as the springboard to Southeast Asia and beyond.”

Murphy adds: “South and Southeast Asia is an engine of growth for HSBC Group. Kini’s extensive coverage experience will help accelerate our expansion plans in Singapore and beyond, where we aim to become the region’s leading bank for the new economy, support our clients in the transition to net zero and capture new opportunities from increasing trade and investment flows in and out of South and Southeast Asia.”
