She will be responsible for around 500 investment employees and oversee approximately USD600 billion in assets under management across both traditional and alternative asset classes.
 
Harford (pictured), who will be based in New York and report to Ulrich Koerner, president of UBS AM, joins UBS AM from Citigroup where she has worked for the past 24 years, most recently as regional head of markets for North America, a role she held for nine years. In this role, she was responsible for sales, trading, origination and research across all fixed income, currencies, commodities, equities and municipal businesses. Harford was also a member of Citi’s Pension Plan Investment Committee and a director on the board of Citibank Canada.
 
Harford served as the co-head of Citi Women and on the board of directors of The Forte Foundation, a US non-profit organisation dedicated to increasing the number of women leaders in business.
 
“Suni is a highly experienced and impactful senior leader, with a Wall Street career spanning nearly 30 years. She brings strong leadership capabilities combined with a broad knowledge of the investment markets across multiple asset classes and deep understanding of macro-economics,” says Koerner. “Over the past two and a half years, we have transformed Investments from a multi-boutique structure into the integrated platform we have today. In her new role as head of investments for asset management, Suni will build on this by executing on our strategy to deliver sustainable performance for our clients.”
