Singaporean lender UOB has hired Khoo Lin Wein as managing director and regional market head for Southeast Asia under its private bank arm, which is dedicated to serving high-net-worth (HNW) clients across Asia. Khoo reports to Chew Mun Yew, UOB’s head of private wealth, and is responsible for expanding the bank’s HNW client base across Southeast Asia and developing progressive products and services to meet their needs.
Khoo’s addition to the team is in line with the bank’s reorganization of its private bank arm across three regional market groups, namely Southeast Asia, Singapore and North Asia.
With more than 25 years of private banking experience, Khoo has held leadership roles at various international financial institutions in Singapore and across Southeast Asia. Before joining UOB, Khoo spent close to five years as the head of private banking for leading banks in Malaysia and Vietnam.
