"Best Private Bank Globally 2013"

The Euromoney Private Banking & Wealth Management Survey is recognized as among the most prestigious in the industry as the evaluation is mainly based on peer votes. It provides a qualitative and quantitative review of the best services in private banking by asking client-facing private banking professionals from participating companies for their individual opinion. In 2013, Euromoney received over 2,000 votes from more than 380 institutions globally.

This year UBS has been awarded Euromoney’s "Best Private Bank Globally" title in 17 global, 19 regional and several country-specific categories. UBS has won many of the most important global categories for three consecutive years now, including “High Net Worth II (USD 10 million to USD 30 million)”, “range of investment products” and “family office services”.

UBS's ambition to be the leading wealth manager is also reflected in a number of key markets where the ranking improved from No. 3 (2011) and No. 2 (2012) to No. 1 in 2013. Such accolades include "Best Private Banking Services Overall" in Western Europe and Asia.

“Regaining the top position in the Euromoney survey this year underlines our role as the preeminent wealth manager in the world today. We are succeeding in our efforts to regain recognition not only from clients and prospects, but also from our peers across the industry.”

Juerg Zeltner, CEO, UBS Wealth Management
