Mirabaud Marks Another European Wealth Hire

Beginning the summer on a hiring spree, Mirabaud has appointed a CEO for its European wealth management business following a similar announcement for its UK franchise.

Based in Luxembourg, Jeff Mouton has been named CEO of Mirabaud's European wealth management platform. He will also be responsible for overseeing the group's European wealth business.

He reports directly to Mirabaud managing partner Nicolas Mirabaud and succeeds Raphaël Spahr, director of the wealth business since 2013, who will stay on to lead a dedicated wealth management team.

Mouton (pictured), who is the second hire Mirabaud has announced this week, is moving across from Swiss rival Julius Baer. On Tuesday, this service reported that Julius Baer veteran Stuart Bates had been tapped as CEO to head Mirabaud's UK wealth division.

Mouton will mostly provide cross-border solutions for private clients, independent wealth managers, and work with Mirabaud’s European platform, the firm said. In the past, he has held senior management posts at Julius Baer and Pictet.

“We are delighted to welcome Jeff Mouton, a highly qualified wealth management professional with 30 years' experience in the Luxembourg financial services industry,” Nicolas Mirabaud, managing partner and chairman of Mirabaud's European board, said on Tuesday.

The firm is continuing its strategy of developing key European markets from the Luxembourg office to meet "a demanding European client base," he said.

It provides customised financial and advisory services across its European offices in Geneva, Basel, Zurich, London, Luxembourg, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville and Milan.
