Sad to report.

Gary Tan, head of financial markets in Singapore for London-based Standard Chartered, has died. He was 42.

Bloomberg News reports his death was announced in a company memo that said he was with the bank for 19 years and called him 'an important member of the Singapore country management team.' Spokeswoman Lim Siow Joo confirmed the memo’s contents. His age was included in a death notice in Friday's Straits Times newspaper.

According to a LinkedIn profile, Tan, a managing director, became head of financial markets in April, following eight months as head of global markets. In a 2013 news release announcing that appointment, the bank said Tan was Singaporean and gave his full name as Gary Tan Kim Loon. He also was named to the Singapore management committee at Standard Chartered, which gets about three-quarters of its earnings from Asia.

'Gary has extensive knowledge of our network and regulatory and risk management experience,' Ray Ferguson, then the bank’s Singapore chief executive, said in the announcement. 'We look forward to his leadership in positioning the business for future growth.'
