Mr. Iliev has 25 years of entrepreneurial, investment banking and wealth management experience, with focus on natural resources in emerging markets, along with more than 50 originated and executed capital markets, M&A and private equity transactions.

Following a 10-year investment banking career in Eastern Europe with subsequent relocation to Switzerland, Mr. Iliev founded Iliev Capital Partners in 2012, as a corporate finance advisory business based in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland. During 2012-2018, Mr. Iliev worked together with former UBS colleagues at Manhattan-headquartered Three Keys Capital Advisors. Mr. Iliev participated actively in Three Keys’ strategic growth to 15+ people across two continents and multiple countries and maintains an excellent relationship with this firm to date.

In 2018 Mr. Iliev re-joined UBS within its Wealth Management division in Zurich to capitalize on entrepreneurial and investment banking work experience on basis of relationships developed to date, while working closely with colleagues at UBS Investment Bank. He was instrumental in retaining and growing an ultra high net worth client book and played a key role for the launch of a new business related to sell-side investment banking advisory within wealth management in partnership with investment banking boutiques.

Prior to UBS, Mr. Iliev worked at Ernst & Young, ING, Citigroup and UBS Investment Bank covering various industries, including metals & mining, retail & consumer, real estate and agriculture. This variety of professional experience allowed Mr. Iliev to establish a robust network of relationships with individual and institutional family office investors, together with top management and ownership in multiple industries across Europe and the former Soviet Union.
