Rabobank has relocated Jan Lambregts from Singapore to Hong Kong where he will continue his roll as head of research, Asia. According to the Dutch bank, this move is in line with its efforts to expand into North Asia to consolidate its trading, product and research capacity in one centre.

From Hong Kong, Lambregts will be responsible for keeping taps on developments in all major Asian countries, with a particular focus on Japan and China. In addition, he will provide support to sales, trading, structuring and management with his comments and analysis on market events.

Lambregts will maintain his reporting line to Donal Galvin, RabobankÆs head of global financial markets in Asia and will also continue to write his various daily, monthly and quarterly economic research publications for internal and external customers.

He moved to RabobankÆs Singapore offices in 2001 and, prior to this, worked in the firmÆs Utrecht headquarters. In this position he covered the US, Japan and UK in the macro team of the economic research department.
