Happy at 'exceptional' UBS

Smile Aleksandra P

'I think this group is exceptional'.

The Financial Times reports that Andrea Orcel has his sights set on becoming chief executive of a bank some day, dismissing suggestions that the grand plan of the head of UBS’s investment banking operations is to restore the investment bank to its former size or spin it off as a standalone company.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Orcel, who turns 52 on Thursday, said 'of course' he wants to run a bank some day. 'If I could be CEO of any bank in the world UBS would be a good place to start', he added. 'I think this group is exceptional'.

However, the Italian stressed that the thought is purely hypothetical since he loves his current role running the investment bank.
