UBS Global Wealth Management provides financial advice and solutions to wealthy, institutional and corporate clients worldwide. As part of our leading research capabilities, we survey global investors on a regular basis to keep a pulse on their needs, goals and concerns. Since 2012, UBS Investor Watch tracks, analyzes and reports the sentiment of high net worth investors.
UBS Investor Watch surveys cover a variety of topics, including:
- Overall financial sentiment
- Economic outlook and concerns
- Personal goals and concerns
- Key topics, like aging and retirement
For this edition of UBS Investor Watch, we surveyed almost 5,000 high net worth investors (with at least $1 million in investable assets). The global sample was split across 10 markets: Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the U.K., Mexico and the U.S. In the U.S., over 1,600 people were surveyed, while a minimum of 400 responses were gathered in each of the other eight markets. The research was conducted in the U.S. in March 2018 and in the other markets between December 2017 and January 2018.
