UBS has merged two of its hedge-fund services businesses, uniting capital introduction and business consulting under one umbrella.
The new capital and consulting services unit is part of the Swiss bank’s prime brokerage business. It will be led by London-based Mike Sales, who had been both global head of UBS’s business consulting services and regional head of capital introduction.
