on 27 Sep 2023

27 September 2023, Frankfurt, Germany – Following her appointment to the Standard Chartered Bank AG (SCB AG) Supervisory Board, Molly Duffy, Head of Financial Markets for Europe and Americas, is pleased to confirm further additions to the Financial Markets leadership team as the Bank grows the Continental European franchise.

Emmanuel Ramambason is appointed as Head of Financial Markets, SCB AG, effective 16 October 2023. This is in addition to his role as Global Head Resources Management and Analytics. He will be based in Paris, France. Emmanuel joined Standard Chartered in 2016 and has held several leadership roles within Financial Markets across XVA Trading, Portfolio Risk Management, Financing and Securities Services. He will report to Nicolo Salsano, incoming CEO of SCB AG.

Thomas Kikis, Global Co-Head of Corporate Sales, Financial Markets, is relocating from New York to SCB AG’s headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany, effective 2 October 2023. Now based in Continental Europe, he will continue with his global Financial Markets responsibilities. Thomas has been with Standard Chartered for the past 25 years and has held multiple senior positions in Financial Markets across our New York, Hong Kong, and Singapore offices.

These key leadership moves come on top of previous appointments earlier this year that showcase further our commitment to the Bank’s Continental European franchise:

  • Andre Bucher was appointed Head of Investors Sales for Continental Europe, based in Frankfurt.
  • Jean-Baptiste Chambaud was appointed Head of Corporate Sales for Continental Europe, based in Paris.

Commenting on these appointments, Torry Berntsen, Chairman of Standard Chartered Bank AG’s Supervisory Board and CEO, Europe and Americas at Standard Chartered, said: “Standard Chartered Bank AG plays an integral role in driving the Bank’s European and international growth aspirations and connects important markets in our extensive global network. I am convinced that this strengthened Financial Markets leadership team in the Region will benefit our clients and enable us to deliver on our strong ambitions for our European business.”

Standard Chartered Bank AG was formally established in December 2018 with headquarters in Frankfurt, following the granting of a full banking license, and acts as Standard Chartered’s EU hub. SCB AG currently employs close to 350 people representing circa 50 nationalities in Germany and its branches in France and Sweden.
