Indosuez Wealth Management, the global wealth management arm of French banking group Credit Agricole, has named Julien Collin as the new head of markets, investment and structuring for its Singapore business.

Based in Hong Kong, Collin will manage global asset allocation advice, investment solutions and recommendations for Indosuez’s UHNW clients.

In the new role, he will spearhead a 35-member team in Singapore, managing foreign exchange and precious metals, structured products, advisory, discretionary portfolio management, private equity, funds, execution, real estate, wealth structuring as well as credit structuring activities.

He will report to the firm’s Asia CEO Pierre Masclet and head of markets, investment and structuring Arjan de Boer.

Collin joined Indosuez in 2014 in the role of head of markets and investment solutions in Paris. He was later appointed as the firm’s acquisition programme director, for which he moved to Singapore.

He began his banking career in 2007 at Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank in mergers and acquisitions and later worked at the firm’s general inspection unit. He also worked at Credit Agricole S.A’s group strategy and development arm and at CA Cariparma’s corporate unit.

“Julien Collin is an asset to spearheading the smooth acquisition and integration of CIC’s Private Banking operations in Asia, a crucial component of our expanded Asian offering. He ran a tight ship to ensure on-time, on-target closing of the successful acquisition,” Masclet noted.
