Vontobel Asset Management has appointed Gregor Hirt as head of multi-asset solutions from rival firm UBS, the company has announced.

Hirt will join the Zurich-based asset manager's multi-asset subsidiary in July 2017, which oversees CHF 22 billion (€20 billion) in assets under management. He will also serve as a member of the Investment Committee.
