UBS GAM Gets New Head of EMEA


UBS Global Asset Management has tapped Oliver Bilal as head of global asset management for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Bilal was the CEO of Baroda Pioneer Asset Management Company Ltd., an India-based joint venture between Pioneer Investments and Bank of Baroda. His stint at the Indian joint venture did not last long, starting in January 2015. Before he took on the JV role, Bilal was managing director, head of sales and marketing at Pioneer Investments KAG in Germany. Before Pioneer Investments, Bilal had a long stint at Allianz Global Investors Europe.

Bilal will start at UBS on May 4, 2015. He replaces the interim head Andreas Schlatter who is head of distribution in global asset management. Bilal will report to Ulrich Koerner, president of global asset management at UBS.

Jack Lin from Pioneer Investments will fill in Bilal’s spot. He is also the chairman of the joint venture with Bank of Baroda.
