Sadr, who is based in Dubai, reports to Alex Classen, chief executive of Coutts International and Duncan MacIntyre, head of Coutts Private Office.
"The Middle East is a key area of growth for Coutts, as is the ultra-high net worth segment," said Classen. "The addition of Amir to lead this team is a significant step in our ongoing strategy to provide clients with a world class wealth management service.”
Sadr previously spent 12 years with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he created and led the business’s institutional client and family office groups.
Coutts is the wealth division of Royal Bank of Scotland Group, but dropped its RBS branding last month. It has offices in London, Zurich, Geneva, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.
