Credit Suisse’s Zuercher Joins UBS in Asia

Adrian Zuercher has left his job as strategist at Credit Suisse Hong Kong Ltd. for UBS AG.

Zuercher, 39, joined Switzerland’s biggest bank as head of asset allocation for Asia on June 3, according to Julie Yeo, a Singapore-based spokeswoman for UBS. He is based in Hong Kong and reports to Mark Andersen, co-head of global asset allocation, and Min Lan Tan, Asia-Pacific regional head of UBS Wealth Management’s chief investment office.

Zuercher joined Credit Suisse Group AG in October 2005 in Zurich as an investment strategist and moved to Hong Kong in 2012 to assume responsibility for asset allocation in emerging markets. Credit Suisse Hong Kong is part of Credit Suisse’s asset-management unit.

Edna Lam, a spokeswoman for Credit Suisse in Singapore, declined to comment, citing a policy not to comment on personnel matters.
