Patrick Yeung heads to Hong Kong, while Eric Lam goes to the Singapore office.

JPMorgan will bolster its credit sales teams in Hong Kong and Singapore with the appointments of Patrick Yeung and Eric Lam.

Both new hires will join the firm as vice presidents and report to Kelvin Wong, JPMorgan's managing director, regional head of sales, credit markets.

To be based in Hong Kong, Yeung hooks up with the credit sales team with immediate effect. For JPMorgan, Yeung assumes responsibility for marketing to Hong Kong based fixed income investors.

He moves to the bank from an 11-year stretch at Goldman Sachs, which culminated in the head of South East Asia central bank sales position. At JPMorgan, Yeung takes over the role from Leonora Lok.

Moving to Singapore in a newly created role, Lam will direct his attention towards the marketing of structured credit and light exotic products. Lam arrives at JPMorgan following his departure from Credit Lyonnais in Singapore where he was a VP in its investor sales team.
