Based in Hong Kong, Alois Müller, along with his team, will be responsible for building the company’s client business across North East Asia. He takes up the new position on 2 September.
At UBS Müller held a number of senior roles during 35 years at the firm, in Zurich, London, New York and most recently Hong Kong, where he was head of ultra high net worth for several Asian countries.

“He will play an important role in the expansion of our Asian business with a particular focus on the all-important Entrepreneur client segment. Collaboration across the Rothschild Group is important to our success both in Asia and globally, and with his background, Alois is well positioned to work together with trust, global financial advisory and merchant banking.”
