UBS is also boosting its capital introductions and sales staff, with the hires of Cheryl Lau from Hillhouse Capital and another investor-relations staffer set to start next month.

UBS has also promoted the newly-hired Ben Horner to head of business consulting in Asia. The former Elliott Associates and Cranmore Capital Advisers executive had been hired just last month as an executive director in prime brokerage sales.
