The 31-year-old man, whose actions the Swiss bank says cost it some $2.3 billion (SFr2.1 billion), faces two charges of fraud and two of false accounting in a case that has shaken the investment banking world.

The British-educated son of a retired United Nations official from Ghana worked as a director of exchange traded funds at UBS. He has yet to enter a plea.

On Tuesday, the man spoke only to confirm his name during his latest court appearance since being arrested in London in September. 

At a previous hearing, his lawyer said had said the accused was “sorry beyond words for what had happened”.
