Swiss private bank Bank J. Safra Sarasin has named Daniel Belfer as its new CEO as part of its executive board reshuffle.

Belfer succeeds Edmond Michaan, who will now lead group strategy at the bank and at the larger J. Safra Group.

In the new role, Michaan’s remit includes real estate as well as other private investments. At the same time, he will be a future board member of Chiquita.
