Zhang Yun (simplified Chinese: 张云; traditional Chinese: 張雲; pinyin: Zhāng Yún; born May 1959) is a Chinese economist and banker who served as president of Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) from January 2009 to December 2015. He had also served as vice-president and deputy party chief of the bank. In November 2015 he was taken away by the anti-graft authorities. He spent over 30 years working at the bank and was appointed vice-chairman, president and deputy secretary of the Party committee at the bank in 2009. Zhang Yun is so far the most high-profile bank executive in China caught since Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping's continues an anti-graft dragnet at all levels of government, military and ruling Communist Party. His predecessor, Xiang Junbo, was also sacked for graft.

Agricultural Bank of China, one of China's four massive, state-owned banks, is ranked as the world's third-largest bank with $2.7 trillion in assets, according to S&P Global. In March 2001, he was appointed assistant president of Agricultural Bank of China, nine month later, he rose to become vice-president. In January 2009 he was promoted again to become president and deputy party chief of the bank, replacing Xiang Junbo.
