Kunnambath would report to Alex Wade, Head of Developed and Emerging Asia for Private Banking Asia Pacific.

"I am confident that under Balan and Inigo's leadership, we will continue to broaden our client base and deepen client penetration, drive collaboration opportunities with both our global NRI teams and our business in India, and to grow our Indian Private Banking franchise sustainably for the longer term," Alex Wade said.

Mendoza has been appointed Head of Private Banking India. He would be based in Mumbai and report to Kunnambath and locally to Mickey Doshi, CEO India.
