We speak with Jonathan Chan, Head of Global Innovation at Julius Baer, who is helping the private bank to realise value from innovation

Jonathan Chan is Head of Global Innovation for Julius Baer – a position he has held since June this year, following a two-year stint as Head of Launchpad Asia. A graduate of Singapore Management University, Jon is a seasoned corporate innovation practitioner who recently led transformation and innovation initiatives at insurance company AXA, and agriculture company Cargill. 

His appointment is in line with the bank’s broader view of Asia as its second home market and a key source of growth in the last decade. 

Meet Jonathan Chan

Innovation in banking is not new; multiple bank innovation labs with bold growth ambitions have come and gone. These lessons are not lost on Chan, who has set up the Global Innovation team to prove that a successful innovation model is still possible in banking. 

His team boasts a dedicated full-stack capability, giving them full control of the innovation process, mixed with a blend of experience and youthful hunger. Jon’s team is able to take innovation projects through a pipeline starting from actively scanning  opportunities on the horizon with impact on wealth management, to a robust innovation methodology of taking projects through the grind of ideation, validation and incubation which puts the ideas through real-world testing. 

Successfully validated products are then transferred to internal business units to run as part of ‘business-as-usual’. The team then resets, focusing on the next set of big opportunities. 

Prior to joining Julius Baer in 2021, he was the Digital Strategy and Innovation Advisor at Cargill and led the firm’s corporate venture building program for APAC, enabling the development of new digital business models.

He has extensive experience in helping corporates to successfully innovate and transform their businesses.

Jon is passionate about mentorship and is always willing to exchange and share experiences.
