Ex-Standard Chartered & Grab lawyer takes top SG digibank job
Singapore's digital banking space has been heating up in 2023. The pack has widened from four to five with the addition of Standard Chartered-backed Trust Bank but a different digibank has hired someone with experience at both the investment bank, and Singapore's largest fintech, Grab.
ANEXT Bank has hired Jean Li as its head of Legal having most recently been senior legal counsel at IT conglomerate Tencent. Before that, she spent three years at Grab: The bulk was spent as a regional legal counsel for financial services including digibanks, payments and wallets, but her last eight months saw her become head of Legal for the fintech's digital banking projects. She also claims to have spearheaded automation efforts that optimized processes by up to 80%.
She's spent plenty of time in more established financial institutions too. She spent three years at Singapore exchange platform SGX and three years at Standard Chartered, primarily working on regulatory issues in the wholesale banking division.
