The appointments for roles based in Latin America and in Zurich are part of the private bank's regional coverage.

Swiss private bank Julius Baer has appointed José Miguel Irarrazával del Campo as new head of its office in Santiago, Chile (pictured), replacing James Walker who has decided to pursue other opportunities outside the firm.

Del Campo founded Queulat Capital, a real estate investment platform for institutional investors and family offices in Chile. Before that, he was general manager of a local family office and head of the investment bank of Credit Suisse in Chile.

Among other moves, Rocio Paredes de Danessi has joined Julius Baer as a senior relationship manager for subregion Mexico and Hispanic Americas based in Zurich. She is joining from Credicorp in Lima, Peru, where she was a portfolio manager for the wealth management division.

Ivan Toro is joining Julius Baer from BTG Pactual in Bogotà Colombia. He will support the head representative officer, Eduardo Garcia, who joined the team at the beginning of 2021.

Sub-region Mexico and Hispanic Americas are part of the Americas region, which includes Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, and other markets.
