Swiss private bank Julius Baer has hired Chew Mun-Yew as its Taiwan head. Based in Singapore, Chew reports to David Shick, head of private banking for Greater China.
He comes from UBS Wealth Management, where he was most recently Taiwan country head.
Chew joined UBS as the chief risk manager in 2012 and was responsible for business risk management for Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific countries.
Prior to that, he held senior management positions at Carlyle Asia, where he was part of a team that worked with a Taiwanese commercial bank, DBS Group, and American Express.
He also served the Monetary Authority of Singapore as a senior banking and insurance regulator for more than five years.
The announcement comes one week after Julius Baer CEO Boris Collardi resigned to move to Pictet Wealth Management. He will be succeeded by the company’s chief risk officer Bernhard Hodler.
