He will manage the bank’s trade services and finance, supplier finance, export and agency finance, trade risk distribution and trade commodity finance operations. He reports to Amol Gupte, Asia Pacific head for TTS, and to global trade head John Ahearn globally.

Based in Hong Kong, Kapoor has worked at Citi for 22 years, since beginning his banking career in India in 1993. He was most recently head of trade sales, Asia and previously head of structured trade, Asia.

Gupte says: “Across our 17 markets in the Asia Pacific region, we see many opportunities to further expand our trade portfolio with our trusted advisory and tailored solutions. Vishal’s experience and deep knowledge will be instrumental as we continue to closely partner with our global and Asian multinational clients in their growth plans. I look forward to his leadership in growing and strengthening our business in the region.”

Ahearn adds: “Asia continues to be at the heart of global trade flows and the region is a key strategic focus for corporates seeking global expansion. Vishal’s extensive knowledge on the wide spectrum of trade products and solutions, and deep insights on trade trends on the global and regional scale will be instrumental in leading our trade portfolio in Asia.”
