New lead for BNY Mellon APAC custody business

BNY Mellon will welcome a new Asia Pacific head of asset servicing from Northern Trust.

Rohan Singh has been appointed to the role, leaving Northern Trust where he was most recently country head, Singapore and head of South East Asia.

To be based in Singapore, Singh succeeds Francis Braeckevelt who has been in the position on an interim basis in addition to his role as Asia Pacific chief operating officer for asset servicing. Braeckevelt will resume that role.

Singh is expected to drive the execution of growth opportunities for the APAC asset servicing business, and oversee the expansion of BNY Mellon's local capabilities in the region.

"Rohan brings nearly three decades of asset servicing experience, working within large organisations across Asian markets and demonstrating a proven track record of increasing the management and relationship skills under his leadership," executive vice president of BNY Mellon and chief executive of asset servicing, Samir Pandiri said.

"His expertise and industry knowledge will be critical as BNY Mellon builds on strategic growth opportunities within alternative investments, exchange-traded funds, real estate, private equity and middle office solutions in the region."

Singh has previously served as a director at Citibank and held several positions, including head of global custody sales South Asia. He has also worked for State Street.

Singh will report directly to Pandiri and join the firm's Asia Pacific Leadership Council.
