Beat Meier appointed regional head at UBS Wealth Management


UBS Wealth Management has appointed Beat Meier as regional head for its business in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

UBS Wealth Management has operated in Canada since 1951.

Meier joined UBS in Switzerland in 1992. He held a variety of positions in Zurich prior to joining UBS Wealth Management Canada in Vancouver in 2003. In August 2005, Beat opened the Calgary office of UBS Wealth Management.

"Beat’s deep roots with UBS and international banking knowledge has given him the depth of experience needed to assist Canadians in the fastest growing wealth communities in Canada," says Grant Rasmussen, president and chief executive, UBS Bank (Canada). "Based in Calgary, Beat leads a team who represents the only global wealth management firm with a presence in Western Canada."

Most recently, Meier was a senior private wealth adviser and a member of the UBS KeyClient Group in Canada. The KeyClient group serves the ultra high net worth in Canada (greater than CAD30m in investable assets).

Before he established the Calgary office, Meier spent two years in the Vancouver office of UBS. He served a wide range of Canadian clients with sophisticated investment management needs in multiple currencies and asset classes.
