Reyl & Co appoints London COO
Gideon Wittenberg has been appointed chief operating officer and senior client manager at Reyl & Co’s London office.
Wittenberg will work with Ladislas Safyurtlu, managing partner, to develop Reyl London, including offering the palette of services, from fund management (Reyl Asset Management) to private office services (Reyl Private Office) and investment banking. The Reyl group overall has assets of some CHF8.5bn.
Wittenberg officially joined Reyl in May 2013. Previously he worked at SG Hambros Bank in London as a private banker and group commercial manager.
Ladislas Safyurtlu said: “Gideon Wittenberg’s experience is well suited to the Bank’s ambitions in the UK. REYL & Co tailors its services to business leaders active for the most part in the global trade arena. For them, London is not only a natural gateway to the markets of Asia, the Middle East, Russia and the United States but often also a mandatory crossing point. Gideon’s appointment is another step towards establishing a lasting presence in London in order to maintain genuinely close ties with clients and ensure a flawless level of service.”
