“I am convinced that, with the new structure and the substantial recruitment of new staff, we are very well positioned to offer our clients excellent service in our important home market of Switzerland and also to continue to grow,” Robert-Charrue added.
Julius Baer made several changes to its management ranks lately.

It recently also named Yvonne Suter as the new head of corporate sustainability and responsible investment (CSRI). Suter joins from Credit Suisse.
