Vontobel hires two new wealth management experts in Basel, where it plans to further expand its activities.

Daniel Schüpbach, who served as Head UBS Family Banking in the Basel region and as a member of the Management Committee HNWI Wealth Management, and Matthias Crettaz, Deskhead UBS Family Banking HNWI/WM 2.0 in the Basel region, are to strengthen Vontobel Wealth Management’s advisory team in Basel from November 1, 2019. Daniel Schüpbach will, at the same time, take over the regional management of Wealth Management in Basel. Both have many years of experience in advising wealthy Swiss private clients as well as very close professional and personal ties to the Basel region.

Basel is one of Vontobel‘s 13 locations in Switzerland. The bank has been offering its products and services, as well as its expertise as a globally active wealth and asset manager, to its private and institutional clients in Basel for around 10 years. The acquisition of Notenstein La Roche Privatbank AG in 2018 enabled Vontobel to expand its presence in Basel and it moved into the former La Roche head office in Rittergasse 25. In total, around 35 employees from Wealth Management and Asset Management serve clients in Basel and the surrounding region. Vontobel also partners with external asset managers based in the region. It intends to further grow its local presence – thus also underscoring its strong commitment to its Swiss home market.

In his new role, Daniel Schüpbach will work closely with Jean-Pierre Stillhart, who is responsible for Wealth Management in Zurich and Central Switzerland and additionally took over the lead of the whole of German-speaking Switzerland for Vontobel Wealth Management in spring 2019. In geographical terms, this region encompasses Basel, Berne, Chur, Lucerne, Olten, Schaffhausen, St. Gallen, Winterthur and Zurich.

“We are very pleased that Daniel Schüpbach and Matthias Crettaz are joining Vontobel. These two proven wealth management experts have a strong network and close ties to the Basel region. Vontobel offers global active wealth and asset management with Swiss quality standards combined with a local focus. We have been operating successfully in Basel for many years and have had an expanded team in place since 2018. Under the new leadership of Daniel Schüpbach, we want to achieve further growth with our clients in the region,” stated Georg Schubiger, Head of Vontobel Wealth Management.
