Awards for Distinction 2022 – Rising Star of the Year

Rising Star of the Year 


Horace Yip, Citi Private Bank

Rising Star of the Year


I am incredibly honoured to be recognised alongside my peers in the 2022 Asian Private Banker 12th Awards for Distinction. This is an exciting time for our industry, especially here in Asia where we have seen phenomenal wealth creation over the past two decades.

With its global network and local expertise, Citi Private Bank is uniquely positioned to advise the region’s UHNW individuals and their families.


What we said

While many in the industry faced a challenging 2022, Citi Private Bank enjoyed a record-breaking year for onboarding clients in the Hong Kong market. That growth was in no small part down to Citi taking the opportunity to showcase its values to clients during the market turbulence. But the role of Horace Yip, Hong Kong and Greater Bay Area head, in those achievements should not go unrecognised, said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

In 2022, Yip added the role of head of Greater Bay Area to his Hong Kong duties, where he has been in charge since 2018. This expanded role means he is responsible for Hong Kong and the mainland China South and West markets. More importantly, the new role reflects the increased interconnectivity between Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area, as well as the opportunities for Citi Private Bank as it is attracting a greater share of this market.

This new award honours up-and-coming, individual executives who have demonstrated beyond question their commitment to excellence across fields including employee well-being, nurturing talent, and client service, and Asian Private Banker is proud to award Horace Yip its inaugural prize for Rising Star of the Year at the 12th Awards for Distinction.
