Vontobel Wealth Management has appointed Christian Rose as the new head of its Hamburg branch, replacing Volker Schwarz who has been at the helm for eight years.

Rose was handed the new responsibility on 1 October 2019.

Schwarz will now focus on catering to the firm’s wealth management customers.

Growth at Vontobel’s German unit is said to be mainly driven by wealth management. The firm expanded its Munich and Hamburg advisory teams recently to support growth.

Vontobel intends to further strengthen the Hamburg team under Rose’s leadership.

Rose joins from M. M. Warburg & Co in Hamburg, where he led the Northern German wealth management team.
