Business unusual

As COVID-19 continues to spread, impacting everyday life and causing significant volatility in the financial markets, UBS Asset Management is well-prepared to support our clients as they navigate the challenges that lie ahead.

20 Mar 2020

We are deeply concerned for the well-being of our clients, employees and their families, and for the communities we operate in across the world.

As a global business we have been reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak since it first appeared in Asia and have been able to draw upon these early lessons as COVID-19 has spread across the globe.

At UBS, flexible and remote working have been part of our way of doing business for many years. As a result of this evolving situation, business critical functions are working in split operations globally and where possible, and appropriate, many colleagues are working from home.

Through the dedication and hard work of UBS Asset Management employees, we will continue to support our clients through these extraordinary times. Our Investment teams and Client Relationship Managers will continue to provide regular macro, market and investment commentaries to keep clients up-to-date with developments.

We are also leveraging technology to enhance client interactions including, digital roadshows, global webinars and online client meetings. These digital efforts will continue apace.
