China Merchants Bank’s (CMB) private banking business grew its client base 15% in the first six months of 2011, with assets under management (AuM) jumping 17%.

The results are in step with projections made by CMB vice president Ding Wei in April.

Earlier this year, Ding said assets and customer base of the private banking portion were forecast to grow more than 35% year-on-year in 2011.

AuM is now understood to be close to $50bn.
