Said appointment comes just as Mr Swain announced that he will be relocating to Malta following a lengthy period in the UK.

“After 17 years and seven very different roles across the HSBC Group, my family and I have decided to relocate back to Malta where I will start a new chapter in my ESG journey,” he wrote on social media.

“I will forever be grateful for the support, encouragement, and experience provided from colleagues across HSBC not least in the opportunity to shape my passion into a career by specialising in sustainable finance and ESG risk,” he continued.

Throughout his 17 years at HSBC, Mr Swain held roles within the bank’s Birmingham and London branches. These include Relationship Manager, Credit Risk Manager, and Senior Sustainability Business Development Manager.

“I have met some incredible people, companies, universities, business leaders, NGOs, as well as social and environmental pioneers along the way and formed some special friendships,” Mr Swain added.

“It really has been a lifetime experience and privilege to live, work, and call the UK home. London is where I met my wife, welcomed our son Max, furthered my academic studies, and forged a career in sustainability in the banking sector. I suspect a part of me will always remain there,” he said.

Mr Swain holds a Master of Science decree in Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment from University College London.
