Maybank Kim Eng, the investment banking and brokerage division of Malaysian bank Maybank, has promoted Andrew Gee to assume the role of its Head of Prime Services Sales.
Andrew stepping into this enhanced leadership position comes barely four years after serving with the company in different roles across its CFDs and prime execution services. He originally joined the company in 2015, when he was appointed as the head of institutional sales.
London-based Maybank Kim offers full prime brokerage service to hedge funds, family offices, proprietary traders, and asset managers with managed account platforms.
Gee embarks on his next executive position with a key role within Maybank’s prime brokerage business which serves a client segment that trade in different markets and covers securities financing, fixed income, equities, and leveraged forex.

The parent company Maybank is South East Asia’s fourth-largest bank by assets and has an international network of 2,400 branches in 20 countries, with over 45,000 employees serving customers worldwide.
A Decade in London
Gee, who has nearly 15 years of FX sales experience, joined Maybank four years ago from British spread better and trading provider IG Markets where he served as Institutional Sales Manager for nearly four years.
Prior to joining the IG team, Gee assumed a similar role at MF Global, having worked out of London for over five years, his Linkedin profile shows.
The experience he accrued during his nearly ten years in sales positions likely influenced Maybank’s decision to hire him to guide its FCA-regulated prime brokerage business.
Prime brokers provide services such as lending securities, cash, credit lines and settling of trades. The business is also offering services that wealthy individuals may not get from a private bank, such as direct access to trading.
