HSBC, one of the world’s leading banking and financial services organizations, has announced the appointment of Greg Lowden as the new Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for its operations in Mauritius. This strategic decision comes as HSBC aims to bolster its presence in the region and capitalize on emerging opportunities.
Greg Lowden brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having previously served as the Deputy Head of International Subsidiary Banking in the bustling financial hub of Hong Kong. During his tenure in Hong Kong, Lowden led a dynamic team that excelled in fulfilling HSBC’s commitment to providing corporate clients headquartered outside Hong Kong with unparalleled global opportunities.
As the new Managing Director and CEO, Lowden will spearhead HSBC Mauritius’ management team, aligning efforts with the bank’s overarching strategy and focusing on leveraging HSBC’s core strengths.

Notably, he spent three years working directly under the guidance of the Group Chairman before relocating back to Asia in 2021.
Expressing his enthusiasm for the new role, Lowden commented, “HSBC Mauritius is a great business, ideally located to connect our customers to the true power of our international networks. Building on our proud history in Mauritius, I am really looking forward to working with the team on our next chapter together.”
