UBP - Union Bancaire Privée

Union Bancaire Privée expands its emerging markets capabilities with two key appointments

Geneva (ots)

Today, Union Bancaire Privée announced that it has
hired Eli Koen and Mathieu Nègre as co-heads of Emerging European 
Equities. They join from Fortis Investments.
"We are delighted to welcome Eli and Mathieu" said Richard 
Wohanka, CEO of Asset Management and Alternative Investments at UBP. 
"We are strong believers in emerging markets and Eli and Mathieu 
bring with them unrivalled experience in emerging European and 
Turkish equities." UBP calculates that most institutional investors 
are under-invested in both emerging market equities and bonds and is 
steadily building its capabilities and fund offering in these areas. 
By recruiting Eli Koen and Mathieu Nègre, the Bank will be able to 
offer its clients access to some of Europe's fastest-growing markets 
and allow them to benefit from the strong ties that the pair have 
established with the local corporate sector. Eli Koen has seventeen 
years' experience in the Turkish equity market and Mathieu Nègre has 
been managing emerging European funds since 2001.
"Investing successfully in this region requires real commitment 
and an entrepreneurial approach. UBP offers exactly that and we are 
looking forward to developing a substantial activity there on behalf 
of its clients," added Eli Koen.
