He will fully utilise the capabilities of the integrated bank in order to meet the challenges of increasingly complex and sophisticated ultra high net worth client needs in the Middle East."
Blake Shorthouse, head of ultra high net worth individuals for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, said: "We are very pleased that Edmond chose to join Credit Suisse. We believe that our ability to deliver investment banking and asset management in a private banking relationship context positions us uniquely to serve our ultra high net worth clients and to attract the best talent in the industry."
Carton joins Credit Suisse from a Geneva multi-family office where he spent 18 months as vice-chairman and member of the executive committee.

Prior to that, he spent 12 years with HSBC Private Bank, where he was group head of Middle East & North Africa. He also sat on the executive committee of the Swiss Private Bank and was board member of HSBC bank Middle East.

Before joining HSBC, Carton held a variety of senior positions at JP Morgan, where he spent 20 years in the wealth management, commercial banking and investment banking divisions, including global head of Middle East private banking.
