HSBC’s Asia Pacific recruitment drive is showing no signs of slowing with the appointment of Puneet Gupta to head of global payments and cash management, Vietnam.

Gupta already has experience in Vietnam, most recently leading HSBC’s securities service business in the country.

Furthermore, Gupta has worked in HSBC offices across the Asia Pacific region including in India and Hong Kong.

Gupta’s move comes after a number of staff changes to the bank’s global payments and cash management teams across the region, including in China, Korea, Indonesia and Thailand.

“Cross functional appointments, such as Puneet’s from our securities services business, further strengthens our client advisory capabilities, while providing career development opportunities for our transaction banking professionals,” notes John Laurens, head of global payments and cash management, Asia Pacific.
