REYL Names Zurich Branch Head

The manager has the job of developing the Zurich side of the firm's wealth management business.

Switzerland’s REYL Group has appointed Christian Bauer to head its Zurich branch. 

Bauer, who has more than 24 years of banking experience, started his career in 1997 at Credit Suisse. He also worked for ABN AMRO Private Banking from 2006 and UBP from 2011. He joined REYL in Zurich six years ago alongside Michael Welti, whom he effectively succeeds.

In his new role, Bauer is tasked with pursuing the development of the Zurich branch in the wealth management area, as well as promoting all the bank’s business lines as part of REYL’s 360 services offering strategy. 

REYL Zurich, which serves HNW clients residing in Switzerland, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, wants to expand into its core growth markets. 

"REYL’s Zurich branch is a solid financial performer and a positive contributor to the culture of the entire REYL Group. Christian Bauer’s extensive experience and excellent track record makes him particularly well suited to lead the Zurich branch and to take it to a new level,” Lorenzo Rocco di Torrepadula, partner and head of wealth management, said.

This publication recently spoke to Alpian, the digital banking business of REYL.
