Northern Trust has appointed David I Kim as head of sales for its Corporate and Institutional business across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
Kim will lead a team of sales managers located across the region to continue to drive growth, offering Northern Trust’s innovative and comprehensive range of asset servicing solutions to institutional investors and investment managers across the region.
Located in Singapore, Kim will report to Jon Dunham, head of global sales for Northern Trust and William Mak, head of the APAC region at Northern Trust. Kim succeeds Angelo Calvitto who, earlier this year, was announced to lead Northern Trust’s business in Australasia.
Kim has more than twenty years of experience working in financial services and joins Northern Trust from BNY Mellon in Boston where he was most recently service executive and managing director overseeing a team of US asset servicing directors. In addition to working in cities across the US, Kim spent a number of years of his career based in Asia, including two years in Singapore and six years in Seoul where he was head of asset servicing for BNY Mellon, South Korea.
Kim holds an MBA from Boston College and a bachelor’s degree in finance and investments from Babson College.
“We are delighted to appoint David to continue to drive the momentum of Northern Trust’s business across the region,” says Mak. “We continue to see demand from institutional investors and asset managers for our bespoke, leading-edge solutions. David’s invaluable experience will ensure we remain well-positioned to best support our clients’ requirements.”
Northern Trust has an established network of 11 offices across APAC – in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and South Korea. It has strong relationships with some of the region’s largest central banks, sovereign wealth funds, government agencies and corporations, offering a comprehensive range of customised asset servicing, asset management and capital markets solutions.
