Standard Chartered bolsters securities services team


Standard Chartered has appointed Colin Brooks as vice chairman for its securities services and transaction banking business.

Brooks will advise the business and management teams and act as a senior sponsor to clients. Based in Singapore, he will report to Margaret Harwood-Jones, global head of securities services and transaction banking at Standard Chartered.

With 26 years of experience in the Asian markets, Brooks joined Standard Chartered as a senior advisor in November 2015. Before this, he held several roles at HSBC Securities Services business, including, most recently, global head of custody and clearing.

Harwood-Jones said: “We are delighted to have Colin Brooks onboard at a time when we are embarking on the next phase of our growth strategy.”

She added: “His appointment is evidence of our commitment to grow the business and deliver our best to our clients.

Brooks said: “[Being] with Standard Chartered over the past year has given me great insights into its culture and what makes the Bank so well regarded by many in the industry.”

“I’m excited to be joining a bank that is fully committed to a client-centric approach and investing heavily to build out its client management and operational capabilities.”
