UBS Wealth Management has appointed Anja Heuby-Egli to lead a newly-created sustainable investment solutions function, reported Citywire Selector. She will be responsible for sustainable investing solutions at global wealth management, including general advisory, discretionary and advisory mandates, funds and alternatives.

According to an internal memo referred to by the publication, Heuby-Egli will join UBS chief investment office’s global mandates and investment content team (CIO GMIC) and will report directly to its head, Bruno Marxer. She will also become a member of the unit’s management committee.

Within global wealth management, her role only covers the CIO’s global mandates and investment content function. Andrew Lee will remain head of sustainable and impact investing for its other investment functions, which are known internally as the CIO investment office (IO), informed Citywire Selector. That unit is responsible for investment frameworks, for example asset allocation, methodologies and associated research and thought leadership.

Meanwhile, global mandates and investment content team is in charge of investment products, including those implementing investment views of the IO. When it comes to the 100% sustainable portfolios, Lee will continue to oversee the portfolio framework and methodology and any thought leadership associated with that.

Heuby-Egli’s team will work on the implementation of that framework in products, in collaboration with other content teams. Her primary focus will be EMEA, APAC, and Switzerland, and she will also collaborate with the Americas sustainable investing solutions team.

Experience in sustainable investment

Heuby-Egli started at UBS in 2005 and has worked in the investment bank, group functions, and global wealth management, primarily in the area of risk and investment process methodology. She was in charge of CIO’s data innovation and also worked with the CIO sustainable investment team, where she and her team developed the proprietary ESG scoring platform at the core of the firm’s personalised sustainable investment advice offering. Her new role will be covering wealth management activities, opposite to those of the whole UBS group.
