Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) said it has appointed  Adele Yeo as managing director, head of investment advisors for South Asia.

Reporting to Ranjit Khanna, the head of South Asia, Yeo will lead the team of investment advisors based in Singapore.

She joins from Citigroup’s global markets unit after nearly six years, where her last held role was equity sales director.

She has previously held equity sales and equity research roles at Credit Suisse Securities, JP Morgan Securities, and BNP Paribas Peregrine Securities.

After the integration of the Coutts business in 2016, the Swiss private bank has been increasing head counts in Asia, hiring relationship managers and investment experts.

In September, UBP hired Ushe Koh as market head for Hong Kong.
