BNP Paribas Securities Services appoints new Head of Asia Pacific

17/01/2019

BNP Paribas today announced that Mostapha Tahiri will succeed Philippe Benoît as Head of BNP Paribas Securities Services Asia Pacific, effective February 1

In his new role, Mr Tahiri will continue to expand BNP Paribas Securities Services’ business in the Asia Pacific region, where it has more than tripled its assets under custody over the past five years.  Since first establishing a presence in Asia 10 years ago and Australasia 15 years ago, BNP Paribas Securities Services has gained recognition as a fast-growing market leader and now employs 2,800 people in eight of the most important financial centres in the region: Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.

Mr Tahiri began his career 20 years ago with BNP Paribas Asset Management, before transferring to BNP Paribas Securities Services in 2005. He moved to Asia in 2009 to develop and expand BNP Paribas Securities Services’ buy-side franchise in the region. Prior to his new appointment, Mr Tahiri was Head of Institutional Investors and Head of Digital Transformation for Asia Pacific.

Mr Tahiri will be based in Singapore and will report to José Placido, Global Head of Client Development for BNP Paribas Securities Services, and to Eric Raynaud, Member of the BNP Paribas Group Executive Committee and CEO for Asia Pacific. Mr Tahiri will join the executive committee of BNP Paribas Securities Services and the BNP Paribas regional executive team.

Mr Benoît, who has made a tremendous contribution to the business during his time in Asia Pacific, will relocate to Paris on February 1 to take up his new position as Head of Strategic Business Development and Transformation. In this role, he will report to Patrick Colle, General Manager of BNP Paribas Securities Services and is a member of the executive committee of BNP Paribas Securities Services.
