HSBC Private Banking’s former regional head of fixed income has resurfaced at a Singapore-based fintech firm, Asian Private Banker can reveal.
Edward Chan has joined Bondlinc — a trading automation platform that aims to digitalise private banks’ and securities houses’ access to bond market intel — as executive chairman of its Hong Kong office.
As well as working closely with co-founder and chairman Daniel Yu to lead the Hong Kong office, Chan’s new role will see him spearheading the sales efforts of the bond trading platform in the city.
“We’re very excited to have Dr Edward Chan join the Bondlinc team,” said Yu. “With over 20 years of experience in fixed income and private wealth management, Edward brings insights that will help improve client experience while enhancing regulatory adherence and efficiency for institutions.”
Previously, Chan spent 23 years at HSBC Private Banking, playing a major role in building the bank’s fixed income platform for both advisory and discretionary products. Prior to his departure, Chan was global head of fixed income and had also held regional management roles in HSBC’s fixed income and equities businesses.
Bondlinc is no stranger to hiring from within the private banking sector. Last year, the fintech firm hired Vincent Caldeira, Bank of Singapore’s former technology and strategic programme head, to be its chief technology officer.
