Board of Directors

The Board of Directors (BoD) has ultimate responsibility for the success of the UBS Group and for delivering sustainable shareholder value within a framework of prudent and effective controls. It decides on UBS's strategic aims and the necessary financial and human resources upon recommendation of the Group Chief Executive Officer and sets the UBS Group's values and standards to ensure that its obligations to its shareholders and others are met.

Shareholders elect each member of the BoD, which in turn appoints its Chairman, the Vice Chairman/Vice Chairmen, the Senior Independent Director and the chairmen and members of its various committees.
