UBS global wealth management grows North East team

UBS Global Wealth Management today announces the arrival of Alison Lander as a Director in its Newcastle office.

Alison joins UBS following 20 years at Coutts, where she was Executive Director Team Leader in the Newcastle office since 2015. She began her career at Natwest.

Alison will focus on growing the business in the North East, as well as working closely with current clients across the region.

Her arrival signifies the continued growth of UBS Global Wealth Management’s expansion in the North East, following the hire of Client Advisor Oli York from Brewin Dolphin in 2018.

Aidan Dunstan, North East and Yorkshire Regional Head, said,“We are always on the lookout for the best talent to match our clients’ ambition and help them to achieve their life goals. Alison is one of the most highly respected wealth management professionals in the North East. Her depth of knowledge of the region and experience will be invaluable as we continue to grow our offer.”

Alison Lander commented, “UBS has an unrivalled regional footprint and I am looking forward to working with the team in Newcastle to build on their successes. Despite concerns about Brexit, businesses and High Net Worth individuals in the North East are going from strength to strength, and I’m excited to support them throughout 2019 and beyond.”

UBS offers services in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, London and the South West. It bolstered its regional office teams with a series of appointments throughout 2018, amid continued strong growth in client numbers and net new money.
