Valentin Vonder Mühll new SSPA committee member
The committee of the Swiss Structured Products Association SSPA has elected Valentin Vonder Mühll, Bank Julius Baer, as Philipp Rickenbacher’s successor on the SSPA commit-tee with effect from 1 July 2017. Valentin Vonder Mühll is bringing over 23 years of experience of the structured products business into the work of the association. Philipp Rickenbacher, who is resigning, was a member of the committee for around 4 years, during which he contributed significantly towards the SSPA’s position-ing as the industry association.
Valentin Vonder Mühll has worked in the structured products field at Bank Julius Baer since 1994, and experienced the development of structured products in Switzerland at first hand. Thanks to various management positions on the trading side, he has an excellent understanding of the cur-rent challenges facing the sector. As Head Structured Products Trading, Valentin has comprehensive international know-how and will contribute his knowledge of the trading side into the discussion.
Philipp Rickenbacher has been a member of the SSPA committee since 2013, latterly as deputy chairman and head of the department members. Under his leadership, the association developed successively to represent the interests of the entire output chain. For example, Philipp established a new membership concept that opened up the Association for buy-side representatives and partners. Phillipp’s decision to step down from the committee was taken on account of his changing responsibilities as Head of Advisory Solutions at Julius Baer since July 2016
Members of the SSPA Committee as at 1 July 2017 are Georg von Wattenwyl (Chairman, Bank Vontobel), Jan Schoch (Leonteq), Thomas Schmidlin (Credit Suisse), Adrian Steinherr (UBS) and Valentin Vonder Mühll (Julius Baer).
