Julius Baer International in London has appointed John Dodds as Head of Compliance UK and Ireland.
London/Zurich, 11 May 2017 – Julius Baer International announces the appointment of John Dodds as Head of Compliance UK and Ireland, subject to regulatory approval. He will report to Chief Risk Officer Eleanor Malcolm. John Dodds is a Chartered Accountant and joins from Rothschild’s wealth management business, where he was Compliance Director and Money Laundering Reporting Officer for almost five years. Prior to Rothschild, he worked for Credit Suisse’s private bank, Clariden Leu, where he was involved in the growth and development of their UK domestic operation. He also worked for Butterfield Private Bank, initially setting up an Internal Audit function, before taking responsibility for risk, compliance and MLRO matters. Before specialising in compliance, John’s focus was Internal Audit and risk, which included a time working for the FSA. John Dodds succeeds Derrick Cain, who made a significant contribution to our compliance function and has now decided to pursue a new challenge outside the firm. Eleanor Malcolm, CRO of Julius Baer International, said: “John’s previous roles have given him a wide range of experience in international private banking and wealth management. Compliance is a key function in any financial services company and we are pleased to welcome someone of John’s calibre to the team as we continue to develop Julius Baer in the UK and Ireland.
