Investment themes

Using thematic investing to help you meet your investment challenges

We have developed strategies focused around four core investment themes to help you find the right solutions


Alternative investments can provide returns that are not correlated to debt and equity markets. However, investors must manage risk, return and liquidity considerations that may vary among the various alternatives categories.


Emerging markets

In a "New Normal" of lower long-term bond yields and a flat yield curve combined with slowing economic growth in developed markets, selected emerging markets offer attractive growth opportunities.


Investment solutions

Investment Solutions combines UBS Asset Management's investment expertise with the best of our alternative and traditional investment capabilities and third-party providers to deliver solutions that meet the specific needs of our clients.
