A family bank

Today, just as it always has, Union Bancaire Privée, UBP SA (UBP) belongs to the de Picciotto family, which controls the Bank through CBI Holding SA. Edgar de Picciotto, the Bank’s founder, was the Chairman of the Bank’s Board of Directors until his death in March 2016 after which his eldest son, Daniel de Picciotto, a Board member since 2010, took over. Edgar’s daughter, Anne Rotman de Picciotto, has held a seat on the Board since 2002. Continuity is also embodied in another of Edgar’s sons, Guy de Picciotto, who has been serving as Chief Executive Officer, overseeing the Bank’s operational management, since 1998.

Stable governance structure

UBP’s governing bodies are also made up of top financiers and leading political figures, including Olivier Vodoz, a lawyer and former Chairman of the Geneva State Council, who is the Bank’s General Counsel. In March 2016 Marcel Rohner was appointed Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors, alongside Chairman Daniel de Picciotto and members Anne Rotman de Picciotto, Ligia Torres, David Blumer, Nicolas Brunschwig, and Patricia Bielmann.

The Bank’s operational management is determined by an Executive Committee chaired by Guy de Picciotto. It is made up of:

  • Ian Cramb, COO
  • Nadège Lesueur-Pène, Wealth Management - Developing Markets
  • Mike Blake, Wealth Management - Asia
  • Nicolas Faller, Asset Management - Institutional Clients
  • Michaël Lok, Asset Management - Investment Management
  • Philip Adler, Treasury & Trading
  • Raoul Jacot-Descombes, Risks & Compliance
  • Claudio Rollini, Company Secretary
