People News: C Suisse, UBS, Citi


Credit Suisse has appointed Johnson Chui as head of equity capital markets (ECM) for Asia Pacific and created an investment banking role for frontier markets, both part of new senior appointments in Asia, according a person familiar with the matter.

Reuters reports that the moves come amid plans by Credit Suisse Chief Executive Tidjane Thiam for the lender to expand its presence in Asia as part of a revamped strategy.

In the meantime, Bloomberg News reports that Jeff Emmanuel is breaking into the hedge-fund industry after a career spanning equity research, deal making and investment banking at Citigroup and UBS.

Emmanuel’s Hong Kong-based EFM Asset Management started trading a global stock fund on November 11 with about $20m of his own money and will open the pool to outside investors on January 1, he said in a telephone interview.
