HSBC has appointed Nick Wheeler as its new head of markets and securities services, Australia and New Zealand, and Anita O’Brien named head of global banking, Australia.

Kaber Mclean, CEO of HSBC Australia, says both bring an impressive track record of building strong client relationships, delivering business growth and fostering talent and will be instrumental in driving the continued growth of HSBC’s global banking and markets business in Australia.”

Wheeler started in his new role on 1 April, but has been with HSBC since 2004. He’s held several senior roles within the markets and securities services business – most recently as head of institutional and wealth sales for ASEAN, as well as co-head of ESG for Asia Pacific.

O’Brien commenced in her role in March after acting in it on an interim basis since November last year. She first joined HSBC in 2018 as head of the financial institutions group in Australia and New Zealand after a 20-year career in the banking sector in Sydney and London.

With an international network covering 90 per cent of the world’s trade and capital flows, HSBC says its global banking and markets businesses are uniquely positioned to support Australian corporate, institutional and government clients to access international opportunities and bring the best of the world to Australia through assisting the inbound flow of capital and investment.
