Credit Suisse has again made an appointment in its private banking division, luring Anuj Khanna to the firm. Effective September 28, Khanna will take on the role of head of private banking North Asia.

From Credit SuisseÆs Hong Kong offices, Khanna will be responsible for leading and further developing its private banking business in North Asia. He will report to Marcel Kreis, Credit SuisseÆs recently appointed head of private banking for Asia-Pacific. Kreis will officially begin his Singapore-based role in February 2007 and joins from UBS.

Khanna will fill the gap left by Fidelis Goetz, who recently departed Credit Suisse for an unknown destination.

He joins Credit Suisse from UBS, where he was regional head for the core affluent business segment for Asia-Pacific. To Credit Suisse, Khanna also brings more than 10 years of regional experience in banking and consulting roles.

ôWe are delighted to welcome Anuj to Credit Suisse. Asia-Pacific is an important growth region for Credit SuisseÆs private banking business, with the North Asian markets making strong contribution in the growth of assets and client base,ö says Walter Berchtold, Credit SuisseÆs chief executive officer of private banking. ôWith Anuj coming on board, Credit Suisse will further expand its private banking business in North Asia, and will grow the strength and depth of our relationship management resources.ö
