We’ve made two senior Research appointments

Standard Chartered has appointed Dave Murray as Global Head, Research, effectively immediately. Dave reports to Pamela Walkden, Group Business Head, Regions, and will relocate from Hong Kong to be based in Singapore.

Dave Murray

Dave is responsible for leading Standard Chartered’s world-class Global Research team to provide insightful and incisive research analysis and views to the Bank’s clients across Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The team is made up of economists, analysts and strategists based across 14 countries, focused on key product and business areas including foreign exchange, commodities, credit, rates and equities.

Prior to this, Dave was Head of Equity Research, a role he had held since joining the Bank in January 2010. He is a Chartered Accountant and CFA Charterholder, and was previously with Deutsche Securities for 16 years in diverse roles including Head of Emerging Markets Equity Research and Head of Company Research for Asia Pacific.

Dave succeeds Adrian Walkling, who has decided to leave the Bank for personal reasons.

Stewart Callaghan

Stewart Callaghan succeeds Dave Murray as Head of Equity Research. He reports to Dave and will be based in Hong Kong.

Stewart brings to Standard Chartered a wealth of research experience. He was previously Head of Asia Pacific Equity Research at Nomura for eight years, prior to which he was Regional Head of Company Research at BNP Paribas, and Deputy Global Head of Research at ABN AMRO. Stewart has a strong network and profile in Hong Kong, where he has been based for most of his career, as well as career experience gained in London and New Zealand.

Commenting on the two senior appointments, Pam Walkden said: “Standard Chartered’s Global Research business produces thought-leading and highly valued on-the-ground content for our clients. Within it, Dave has led and grown our equity research platform over the past five years. I am very confident that under his astute leadership and experience, our Global Research team will continue to offer the most relevant and differentiated ideas to our clients.

“We also warmly welcome Stewart to the Bank. Stewart’s deep experience makes him an ideal choice to lead the development of our equity research platform, as we continually strive to provide ever more insightful and relevant stock research.”
