RBC Wealth Management makes key appointments in Asia

Both roles are newly created and focus on serving Asian internationally-mobile high net worth families, a key client segment for RBC

RBC Wealth Management, part of Royal Bank of Canada, has made appointments to two newly created roles in its Asia business. Dom Lane has been appointed executive director & team head, private banking and Vicky Lin has been appointed deputy head, private banking, Greater China.

Both appointments will focus on providing deep insight and exceptional service to Asia’s global families, a key client segment for RBC Wealth Management comprising internationally-mobile high net worth families.

Lane joins RBC Wealth Management’s Singapore office, where he will focus on driving business growth for Asia’s global families -- a priority client segment for RBC in the region -- building a team which will focus on global families with links between Asia and Canada, the US and the UK.

Lane brings more than 15 years of experience in the financial industry across Asia and Europe, most recently as executive director (Expatriate Desk) at UBS AG. Prior to that he was market head for HSBC Private Bank’s International Markets offering in Singapore. Lane will report to Mike Reed, head of wealth management for Southeast Asia and Chief Executive of the RBC Singapore Branch.

Lin joins RBC Wealth Management’s Hong Kong office to help serve the increasing needs of clients across Greater China. She will be responsible for growing the company’s client book by providing comprehensive wealth management to Asia’s global families in that region.

Lin brings over 30 years of relationship management and financial industry experience across private banking, consumer banking, asset management and institutional businesses in Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong. She has held senior roles at EFG Private Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and Morgan Stanley, where she spent over a decade. Lin will report to Ignatius (Iggy) Chong, managing director, head of private banking, Greater China.
