Very interesting move in the M&A market. I hope the pace is picking up in this sector for it foretells how the economy would be performing going forward. UBS is building its Investment Banking division, after many senior bankers left the bank earlier on. 

UBS has hired Laurence Grafstein, a veteran deal maker, as a co-head of mergers and acquisitions in the Americas, the Swiss bank announced Tuesday in an internal memorandum reviewed by DealBook.
Mr. Grafstein will be joining from Rothschild, where he previously served as a co-head of mergers and acquisitions and was most recently an executive vice chairman. Before joining Rothschild in 2009, he had worked at Lazard and Credit Suisse. (He also was part of the investor group that sold The New Republic, the American political magazine, to Chris Hughes, the onetime Facebook executive, earlier this year.)
