ZURICH (Reuters) – The world’s largest wealth manager UBS <UBSG.S> on Thursday appointed former Credit Suisse <CSGN.S> executive Iqbal Khan to co-lead its flagship business, replacing Martin Blessing.

“Iqbal Khan will join UBS and succeed Martin Blessing as Co-President Global Wealth Management, alongside Tom Naratil,” Switzerland’s biggest bank said in a statement. “Martin Blessing has decided to step down from his current role.”
