Leger commented: “Following the appointment of Maximilian Beeck as head of wholesale Switzerland in November 2023, Cyril’s hire represents an important next step in the continued growth plan of our Swiss business. Capitalising on our extensive range of capabilities, including alternatives, we are well positioned to grow our footprint with large institutional clients. Cyrill has a robust track record of leading the development of the institutional channel in line with the evolving needs of clients in that space.”
