“The Greater Bay Area is a strategic agenda of primary importance to Standard Chartered. The appointment of the CEO of GBA reflects our long-term commitment in the Greater Bay Area, where financial and economic activity growth is creating greater demand for cross- boundary services due to favourable policies. With Anthony’s extensive banking experience, we hope to further strengthen our cross-boundary expertise and fully capitalise on opportunities arising from China’s opening and RMB internationalisation to provide seamless and innovative banking services for individuals and corporate clients in the Greater Bay Area.”
