UBS has tapped into the expertise of three seasoned bankers to spearhead its equity capital markets (ECM) division in the U.S., aiming to bolster its operations following the challenges posed by its acquisition of Credit Suisse last year. Gregor Feige and Brad Miller have been appointed co-heads of Americas ECM, with Feige also assuming leadership of the technology, media, and telecom (TMT) sector starting July 2024.

With over two decades of experience at Citigroup and JPMorgan, Feige brings a wealth of knowledge to his new role. Miller, concurrently serving as head of consumer and retail, will take on the additional responsibilities. Santiago Gilfond, who led Americas ECM at Credit Suisse for more than 30 years, joins UBS as vice-chairman of the unit, reporting to global co-head of ECM Tommy Rueger. Gilfond will continue to oversee global industrials while taking on his new role.

UBS’s merger with Credit Suisse marked a significant milestone in banking history, prompting a strategic focus on fortifying its position in ECM and expanding its presence in the technology sector. These appointments signal UBS’s commitment to navigating the evolving financial landscape with strength and agility.
