Bank J Safra Sarasin Adds To Zurich Area Private Bank Team

The Swiss bank has recruited two senior figures from Credit Suisse in the Zurich area.

Bank J Safra Sarasin, the Switzerland-based private bank, has made new hires in Zurich as part of its Swiss build-out.

Michael Seiler joined the bank in April this year and Rita Amrein joined this month. They bring 25 and 15 years of career experience with them, respectively, and have worked in financial advisory services within private banking around the Zurich area. Before this, they worked at Credit Suisse. They report to Raphael Alder, who heads private banking for domestic clients in Zurich, the firm said in a statement last Friday.

The bank managed a total of SFr165 billion of client assets as at the end of last year, and employs about 2,200 staff.
