Dear Valued Client,

We are happy to receive such positive feedback from many of our readers on this publication. Each edition, we strive to provide you with interesting articles that are worthwhile of your time. The online version of this publication is gaining popularity and it is good to know that more of you are utilizing digital platforms to access news.

This issue of UBS Perspectives features our newly appointed Global Chief Investment Officer, Mark Haefele. The UBS Chief Investment Office (CIO) is something Mark jointly built over three-and-a-half years ago with resounding success. The CIO produces the UBS House View, based on a rigorous investment process to help you navigate the challenging financial world.

One way to follow the UBS House View is through a UBS Investment Mandate; a flagship offering backed by a global network of more than 900 economists, analysts and strategists who systematically identify favorable investment opportunities.

This edition, we celebrate our partnership with art and artists, and feature legendary Swiss artist Hannes Schmid. Read an exclusive about his life, works, and how he has mastered the art of reinvention. We also celebrate UBS’s inaugural year of partnership with Art Basel in Hong Kong. We hope you had an opportunity to attend Art Basel, and look forward to welcoming you to the show in Hong Kong in March 2015.

UBS was recently identified by Asian Private Banker as the largest and fastest growing private bank in Asia Pacific. We would not have been able to achieve this without the support and trust you have placed in us. Thank you.
