Committed to your success
After studying abroad and starting her career in mainland China, Angela moved to Hong Kong to grow her career. In the past five years, her career has benefited from the strategic location of Hong Kong as it offers investment opportunities to the global markets while attracting global investors to the China financial market.
My first year as the lead for Tech Support Services at Standard Chartered Hong Kong, has been a whirlwind of experiences with emerging FinTech. Since joining the Bank I have been an agent of positive change by utilising cutting-edge and emerging technologies.
When I first joined the Bank on the Graduate Programme in 2010, I instantly knew that Standard Chartered was the ideal organisation to build my career with.
