Commenting on the appointment Stott said in a statement: 'We are delighted that Jamie has joined UBS. Jamie brings with him a distinctive track record of building a leading business franchise in a competitive, multi-jurisdictional marketplace and managing the challenges of difficult markets and a complex regulatory environment. His responsibilities have embraced multiple functions within asset management, and his focus has always been on the client-facing functions and the client experience.
