UPB continues to rebuild business, hires Labovitch


Union Bancaire Privée has hired Emmy Labovitch as head of marketing for asset management. Before joining UBP, Labovitch was global head of marketing at Fortis Investments, where new chief investment officer, Richard Wohanka, was former CEO.

By recruiting Labovitch, UBP is continuing its global hiring spree to rebuild its business after a significant fall in assets on the hedge fund side following the after effects of the Madoff fraud. UBP is focusing on building a global asset-management platform. Labovitch is tasked with strengthening and supporting the sales teams in their client relations across all market segments and regions,
