The majority of the team managing the portfolio will move to Vontobel and the assets will be booked in Switzerland, Vontobel said in a statement.

The pair did not disclose a price for the deal but a typical rule of thumb in pricing private banking transactions is to pay around 1-2 percent of the assets being acquired.
