He reports to Bhupinder Singh, head of the institutional client group and head of structuring for Asia ex-Japan, and to Robert Rankin, Asia-Pacific chief executive.

Kwok has spent the past 17 years at Goldman Sachs. Prior to his role as co-head of corporate sales for Asia ex-Japan, he was co-regional manager of private wealth management in Hong Kong and head of the institutional coverage group at the US bank.
