With the number of Asia’s rich growing rapidly, private banks see its businesses booming and have gone through a hiring spree, according to a latest report by the Wall Street Journal.

This year, UBS has hired 130 clients advisors, leading its private-banking head count in Asia to more than 1,100. Credit Suisse Group has increased its private-banking staff by 7 percent over the past year.
