UBS hands public policy position to Treasury director

Global financial services group UBS - parent of investment bank UBS Warburg - has created a top public policy role for Europe, hiring Treasury director Jonathan Taylor to the post.

Taylor takes on the remit with an aim to help UBS play a leading role in shaping the regulation of Europe's financial services markets.

Part of his brief will see Taylor increasing UBS's contribution to establishing and maintaining dialogue between UBS, the wider finance industry and European institutions.

He will also build relationships with policy-makers, regulators and industry associations at EU level, in the UK and in other EU member states.

While the post is based in London, Taylor will report to and work closely with group head of public policy Peter Buomberger, who is based in Zurich.

He will also report to UBS Warburg's joint global head of corporate finance Rory Tapner in London.

He joins from the UK Treasury, where he was a director, a post he held since 1998.

Prior to that, Taylor was financial counsellor at the UK's Permanent Representation to the European Union in Brussels.
