Clarissa Haller had decided to leave the company at the end of November, the bank said in a statement.

She will be replaced in the interim by Christoph Meier, a former UBS employee, Swiss newspaper HandelsZeitung reported.

In the biggest overhaul of the Swiss bank in almost a decade, Thiam announced plans on Oct. 21 to raise 6 billion Swiss francs (4 billion pounds) from investors, slim down its investment bank and cut jobs.
