RBC Dexia Appoints New Director in Hong Kong

RBC Dexia Investor Services has appointed Alessandro Silvestro to the role of Director of Business Development for Asia. Based in Hong Kong, Mr. Silvestro will be responsible for driving RBC Dexia’s growth strategy in the region for both onshore and offshore mandates.

Alessandro’s unique experience will complement our already strong team in the Asia Pacific region. We are very happy to have him here in Hong Kong.”

In his role as Director of Business Development at RBC Dexia Investor Services in Luxembourg, Mr. Silvestro was responsible for the revenue and growth strategy in the Italian and Swiss market and most recently expanding RBC Dexia’s offer to Sovereign Wealth Funds, Custody Pools and Corporate Vehicles at a European level.
