UBS has turned to a former hedge fund manager to lead its wealth management business.

Mark Haefele was named global chief investment officer of wealth management and private banking yesterday. He succeeds his current boss, Alexander Friedman.

Haefele will be charged with identifying investment vehicles and overseeing asset management.
