“Since joining the firm in 1998, Scott has made an invaluable contribution to the business and has led a consistently top-rated Australian Economics team over the past 10 years,” UBS said.

“We would like to thank Scott for his long-term dedication and commitment to UBS, and his direct contribution to our market-leading Australian franchise. Scott’s thought leadership and professionalism will be missed.

“George has been a key contributor to the Australian economics franchise over the past 11 years and is well placed to carry on the team’s success.”
