UBS (NYSE:UBS)(SWX:USBN) today announced that Philip Lofts has been named Group Chief Risk Officer and a member of the Group Executive Board, effective immediately.

Lofts replaces Joseph Scoby, who has decided to return to his former role as Global Head of Alternative and Quantitative Investments (A&Q) within UBS Global Asset Management.

Lofts most recently served as Deputy Group Chief Risk Officer and Group Risk Chief Operating Officer. A 20 year veteran of UBS, he was previously Group Chief Credit Officer and has held a variety of risk control positions in Europe, the US and Asia-Pacific.

Marcel Rohner, Group Chief Executive Officer said, "Philip's long history in risk control and deep knowledge of UBS make him extremely qualified to lead UBS's risk organization and continue to enhance our risk management, control and reporting frameworks and processes."
Scoby, who will step down from the Group Executive Board with immediate effect, has served as Group Chief Risk Officer since October 2007.

Rohner continued, "We are very grateful to Joe for his instrumental role in reducing our risk positions and increasing the transparency of our portfolio over the last 12 months. He has successfully led our risk control function through a period of exceptional market difficulty and created a new risk organization that will serve us well in the future."
