UBP strengthens convertible bonds division

Geneva-based asset manager Union Bancaire Privée has appointed Cristina Jarrin as senior portfolio manager as part of a plan to build its Parisian convertible bonds team.

Jarrin will report to Jean-Edouard Reymond, UBP’s head of convertible bonds. She joins from Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management, where she headed the firm’s global convertible bond portfolios for six years.

Prior to that, she spent five years at Fortis Investments as a convertible bonds product specialist. Her career in the industry began in 1998 with Citigroup, where Jarrin worked as a risk analyst, before becoming a senior financial analyst.

Jarrin’s hire is part of a wider effort by UBP to bolster its convertible bonds team. Benjamin-François Barretaud and Rui Lopes have also been appointed to the team recently, as junior portfolio manager and developer, respectively. 

UBP managed assets of 110 billion Swiss francs (€101.4 billion), as at December 31, 2015.
