UBS names Harding-Jones Asia-Pacific M&A head

The bank transfers a senior banker to head M&A in Asia-Pacific, partly replacing Stephen Gore who left in 2012, as M&A volumes pick up in the region.

UBS has named Alison Harding-Jones as its head of MA advisory Asia-Pacific, according to an internal note seen by FinanceAsia. A UBS spokesman confirmed the contents of the note.

The Swiss bank is internally transferring a senior banker to its MA franchise in the region at a time when MA volumes have risen with Chinese companies back in buying mode and the reorganisation of sprawling state-owned enterprises offering opportunities for banks.

Australia has also proven to be fertile hunting ground for Asian companies while the Australian government is planning to sell billions of dollars worth of infrastructure assets to the private sector.
