Global Banking News - 10 June 2020

Bank of Singapore, OCBC's private banking arm, has said it has appointed Mansoor Mohi-uddin as its chief economist, subject to regulatory approval, Business Times has reported online.

In his new role, Mohi-uddin will develop strategic views and research analysis on the macroeconomic and financial environment, and shape the bank's economic outlook. He will also join the bank's investment committee. Mohi-uddin will report to Jean Chia, head of portfolio management and research office.

Mohi-uddin is well-known among the research fraternity for his ability to competently assess economic conditions and estimate their impact through market cycles, said Chia.

Mohi-uddin has most recently been a macro strategist at NatWest Markets, the investment arm of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS). Prior to that, he was the global head of FX strategy at UBS Investment Bank, spending 17 years at its London, Zurich and Singapore offices. He served as an economist from 1992 to 1994 in Uganda on a fellowship offered by global independent think tank Overseas Development Institute, the report noted.
