Standard Chartered has appointed Margaret Harwood-Jones as global head for investors and intermediaries, sales, transaction banking. Ms. Harwood-Jones joined the bank on December 10, 2012, and reports to Jiten Arora, global head of sales, transaction banking. She will be based in Singapore.
In this newly created role, Ms. Harwood-Jones will lead the business agenda for the institutional investor and intermediary clients across the bank’s footprint with a focus on accelerating growth and driving its client agenda.
Prior to joining the bank, Ms. Harwood-Jones was at BNP Paribas Securities Services where she was head of client segments, asset managers and alternative investments. She brings with her extensive global experience across various senior management positions in top institutions in the securities services environment.
Commenting on Ms. Harwood-Jones’ appointment, Mr. Arora said: “I am pleased to have Margaret join the bank and believe she will make an excellent addition to the team. She will drive a deeper focus in our investors and intermediaries segment to meet the evolving needs of our clients in this dynamically changing landscape. I am confident Margaret has the experience and ability to bring our capabilities and service offerings to a new level and support the continued growth of our business.”
Ms. Harwood-Jones’ appointment comes off the back of other high-profile hires in the bank’s investor and intermediaries division. In November, the bank announced the appointments of Alan Naughton as global product head, investors and intermediaries, transaction banking and Andrew Hempshall as global head of solution delivery and service, investors and intermediaries, transaction banking. All three appointments testify to the bank’s continued focus and commitment to clients within the sector.
