Citi Snares UBP Hedge Fund Chief For Private Bank Post

Sep 15 2010 | 2:49am ET

Union Bancaire Privée’s London hedge fund chief has joined Citigroup’s private bank to lead its Asia-Pacific operations.

Roger Bacon now oversees managed investment product sales, advisory sales and tailored portfolio origination at Citi Private Bank in Hong Kong. The newly-minted managing director will also work to coordinate research—including alternatives research—and due diligence in his new post, which is itself new to Citi.

At UBP, Bacon worked to build the firm’s discretionary and customized hedge fund business. He formerly worked at a U.K. family office and JPMorgan Asset Management.
