Union Bancaire Privée builds equity capabilities


Union Bancaire Privée has hired Rob Jones as head of its new European equities team, which will be based in London.

He will take up the position on 1 November.

Prior to joining UBP, Jones managed pan-European equity funds at Threadneedle.

A graduate in business studies from the University of Brighton, he spent a total of 14 years at Threadneedle managing UK and then pan-European equity portfolios.

He started his career by spending four years as a UK equity analyst.

"We are delighted that Rob is joining us," says Richard Wohanka, chief executive of asset management at UBP. "An allocation to European equities forms the core of many of our clients’ portfolios, and the recruitment of a top-quality, in-house team to manage this asset class has long been part of our growth plans. Rob’s high conviction, bottom-up approach to equity investing fits in well with UBP Asset Management’s ethos and I am confident that he can replicate his past successes elsewhere at UBP."

"I am very pleased to join UBP," adds Jones. "This is an extremely exciting time for the company as it builds out its investment capabilities and I am glad to be a part of this process. I look forward to leading a new European equities team and developing a range of top-quality investment solutions for our clients."
