Citi has appointed Rapheal Mun to the new position of head of Sustainability & Corporate Transitions (SCT) for Citi’s Banking, Capital Markets and Advisory (BCMA) group in Asia-Pacific.

Mun, who will relocate to Singapore from London, will lead BCMA’s sustainability and environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy and client engagement in the region. She will work closely with sector, country and product teams to drive strategic sustainability dialogue with clients, and maximize the business opportunities generated by the global shift towards more sustainable business practices and the transition to net zero.

Citi’s SCT team was formed in May 2020 and is co-headed by New York-based Bridget Fawcett and London-based Keith Tuffley. Mun will report to Jan Metzger, head of APAC BCMA with matrix reporting lines to Keith Tuffley and Amol Gupte, Citi country officer Singapore.

Mun is currently a senior banker in EMEA Project & Infrastructure Finance, where she has originated and executed numerous innovative and market-leading financings, with a focus on renewables and energy transition. She has over 19 years’ experience across structured finance, infrastructure, power, energy and real estate.

Year to date, Citi has raised over US$30 billion in sustainable financing for Asian clients, a record year already for the bank.
