ZURICH, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Bank Vontobel on Friday said it was acquiring the international portfolio for US-based clients from Lombard Odier for an undisclosed price.
Under the deal Lombard Odier will sell its existing discretionary and advisory wealth management business with US-based clients through an asset transfer to Vontobel.

The deal is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019. ($1 = 0.9963 Swiss francs) (Reporting by John Revill, Editing by Tassilo Hummel)
