A 10-year veteran at UBS equity sales, Fisher was most recently Hong Kong-based executive director, equity sales. During his UBS residence, Fisher also held posts in the London equities department.

Earlier this month, CSFB pilfered UBS research analysts, Vincent Chan and Natalie Wan for its China equities team.
