Hannah Malter becomes head of equity capital markets syndicate in Asia

SWISS investment bank UBS has announced the appointment of Hannah Malter as head of equity capital markets (ECM) syndicate in Asia effectively immediately, reporting to Gaetano Bassolino, head of global capital markets for Asia-Pacific.

In an internal memo sent on April 16 and seen by The Asset, UBS expects Malter to further build on the strong momentum in ECM and continue to diversify its business. She has an extensive experience in ECM and has held numerous roles in Sydney, New York and Hong Kong.

In another appointment, Andrea Casati will become vice chairman of Asia-Pacific ECM focusing on senior coverage of UBS’ priority clients across all industries. In announcing his appointment, UBS is banking on Casati’s global experience and strong ties to its clients, which made him ideally-placed to continue strengthening the bank’s origination and distribution franchise in the region.
