COO of the Year
Laurent Rosfelder, UBS Global Wealth Management
COO of the Year
What we said
Since launching the My Way digital platform in Asia more than two years ago, UBS has led the way among the region’s private banks in hyper-personalisation of investment advice and discretionary mandates. Only now are its peers beginning to catch up in terms of taking the best of what the likes of Netflix have to offer and applying that to shake up the often technologically-archaic world of private banking,” said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.
The success in presenting such digital endeavours to its private clients in the region is in no small part down to Laurent Rosfelder, operating head for wealth management, North Asia, at UBS. The executive has pioneered the Swiss universal bank’s so-called ‘high-tech, high-touch’ service in the region that nimbly walks the line between offering the latest technological tools for its sophisticated client base and ensuring the human advisor remains at the heart of the bank’s service offering.
Rosfelder shows few signs of stopping there, however. In 2022 alone, UBS launched WE.UBS, a digital wealth management platform targeting emerging HNWIs in China’s Greater Bay Area, as well as UBS Circle One, an Asia-developed app that aims to better connect clients with experts within the bank.
With the bank’s impending move in North Asia to new, purpose-built premises in Hong Kong’s Kowloon district, Rosfelder is sure to be keeping busy in the coming months and years, and we are delighted to recognise him as Asian Private Banker’s COO of the Year for 2022.
