The banking group has appointed a senior figure for its UK-focused client business in Switzerland.

Santander Private Banking International in Geneva (Banco Santander Suisse SA) has appointed Duncan Munro as senior vice president for its UK-focused business in Switzerland. Munro begins his role on 1 March.

Prior to this, Munro managed Lombard Odier's UK-orientated team in Geneva. His 37-year banking career has primarily been based in Geneva, where he has previously also run private banking teams for HSBC and Lloyds.

"Our global private banking business is built upon a strong foundation of collaboration and partnership with our colleagues throughout the Santander Group - Duncan's active involvement in the interaction with our UK businesses will be of very significant benefit," Frans von Chrismar, Santander's Head of UK private client business in Geneva, said. Munro reports to von Chrismar in his new role.

"Duncan brings a hands-on approach to client relationship management and he has built a particular reputation for his expertise in the UK resident non-domiciled client segment - a burgeoning part of our Geneva business," he added.
