UBS `was warned over controls'

UBS yesterday declined to comment on a report that Mathis Cabiallavetta, the Swiss bank's chief executive, was warned of inadequate controls on derivative trading in London five years ago. According to the SonntagsZeitung newspaper, Hans-Peter Bauer, formerly head of derivatives at the bank, voiced concerns to UBS top management in 1993. Earlier this year, the bank admitted losing almost pounds 200m on equity derivative and proprietary equity trading in 1997.
