EFG Bank, EFG International’s principal Swiss subsidiary, has appointed Stephan Keiser to the position of head of private banking, Zurich, with effect from January 2014.

He will report to John Williamson, group chief executive, in the latter’s capacity as chief executive of EFG Bank.
An experienced private banking professional, Keiser joins from Bank Vontobel, where he was head of private banking international from 2006, with market responsibility for Latin America, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Italy. Prior to this, he was team leader, private banking Asia-Pacific. Between 1998 and 2003, he worked at Julius Baer with a number of international postings to Asia. His early career was spent at Bank Falck & Co and UBS.
Williamson says: “Stephan has spent his career in international private banking, and I am delighted to be welcoming him to EFG. We are committed to growing our business in Switzerland, and this appointment is a clear reflection of that desire. Stephan also brings extensive experience of a number of growth markets where EFG is active and has ambitious plans to expand. I look forward to working with him to deliver our objective of controlled, profitable growth.”
Keiser says: “I am excited to be joining EFG, given its dynamic track record, and a particular attraction to me was its clear focus on private banking. I look forward to helping EFG to develop its business in Zurich, as well as in high-growth regions where I have first-hand experience, including Latin America, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.”
