ADIA, whose assets are estimated by analysts at between $400 billion and $600 billion, said Weston had most recently headed Helvetica Wealth Management Partners, a company controlled by Credit Suisse and Qatar, a Gulf neighbour emerging as a major rival to Abu Dhabi.

Weston started his career at JP Morgan in 1978 and in 2005 became chief executive of Merrill Lynch’s alternative investments unit, with responsibility for $26 billion in assets.
