Daniela Diethelm joins Vontobel and takes over responsibility for the regional market.

Daniela Diethelm, who last managed the Business Development Wealth Management EMEA area at UBS and who has many years of business experience with German clients, will be taking over responsibility for the Wealth Management market for Germany & Northern Europe from June 2019. Roland Rötheli, who headed the Germany & Northern Europe region for 10 years and, above all, contributed to the successful development in Germany, will continue to advise German clients with his expertise as Vice Chairman Germany.

German clients can receive advice in Germany from the investment experts under the management of Thomas Fischer from Vontobel Europe AG in Munich and Hamburg or from Wealth Management experts from Bank Vontobel AG in Zurich. “We are delighted that we managed to gain Daniela Diethelm, an exceptionally experienced Wealth Management specialist for the further expansion of our business in one of our most important regions. In future we would like to continue to grow organically both in our home market of Switzerland and internationally. In this respect, Germany is among the large focus markets for Vontobel. It is pleasing that our business with German clients has been positively contributing to the Vontobel result for years now. Our thanks go to Roland Rötheli, who as regional head spent many successful years developing the area and who will continue to be at hand for our clients in his new role as Vice Chairman Germany,” says Georg Schubiger, Head of Vontobel Wealth Management.

Diethelm is a Swiss national. She learned the banking business from scratch at UBS in the 1990s. After her training, she later successfully passed the exam to become a Certified Financial Planner and Certified Wealth Management Advisor. Diethelm also possesses an Executive Masters in banking from the IFZ in Zug and Master of Advanced Studies in Bank Management from the University of Lucerne. Already at the beginning of the 2000s, she took on management activities in the business with German clients in Zurich. In her new role, Diethelm will also become a member of the Executive Board of Vontobel Wealth Management under the management of Georg Schubiger.
