(Bloomberg) -- George Soros tapped Dawn Fitzpatrick from UBS Asset Management to oversee his $25 billion family office, replacing Ted Burdick a year after he stepped into the role, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Fitzpatrick, 46, was global head of equities, multi-asset investing and the O'Connor hedge fund unit at UBS Group AG's money management arm. She'll be the first woman to hold the CIO role at Soros Fund Management, which is among the largest family offices in the U.S.
