Standard Chartered Private Bank in Jersey has strengthened its Wealth Intermediaries team with the appointment of Stephan Geissmar as Head of Investments.
Stephan has more than 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry and will be responsible for supporting relationship managers in providing investment solutions that both protect and enhance intermediary clients’ wealth.
Adam Buxton, Head of Wealth Intermediaries, Standard Chartered Private Bank in Jersey, said: “We are delighted to welcome Stephan to our team. Stephan’s experience across multiple jurisdictions including South Africa, the UK and Jersey complements our knowledge and presence in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
“His broad experience in the wealth industry will help us as we expand our services to clients with support from our global investment committee. We’re able to offer clients unique insights and advice, thanks to our open architecture and diversity of opinion that guides the investment solutions we offer.”
Stephan joins Standard Chartered from BNP Paribas Securities Services where he was a business development manager. Prior to that he worked at ABN AMRO Private Bank for 11 years.
“I’m looking forward to engaging with our intermediary clients and helping them discover the most suitable investment solutions to achieve their clients’ wealth goals. Standard Chartered has a long association with the Channel Islands — celebrating 40 years in Jersey this year – and I look forward to deepening the long-standing relationships with many of the island’s wealth intermediaries,” he said.
