Anita Fung quits as HSBC's HK chief

The Hong Kong chief executive, who has been with HSBC for nearly two decades, will leave the bank in a month's time.

HSBC's Hong Kong chief executive officer Anita Fung will leave the firm mid-February, according to an internal memo seen by FinanceAsia.

Fung, a two-decade veteran of the bank, will pursue other opportunities outside the company, the memo said, without specifying.

FinanceAsia was unable to immediately reach her for comment.

Helen Wong, currently CEO and president of HSBC China, has been appointed CEO of Greater China, and will oversee China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. It is a newly-created position and is effective March 1. Wong will take over Fung's responsibilities until HSBC finds a permanent replacement, HSBC said....
