  • 2017: Earning the first ever private fund management (PFM) license for foreign asset managers in China, allowing us to serve high-net-worth investors and institutional clients. Launching the first onshore equity private fund managed by a WFOE in China;
  • 2019: Breaking new ground as the first foreign manager to launch a fund of private securities funds (FOF) in China.

Three times a leader

But it's not only Broadridge who think we are the leading foreign asset manager in China.

Z-Ben Advisors, a Shanghai-based consultancy, ranked UBS Asset Management as the no. 1 foreign asset manager in China out of a group of 25 competitors in both 2018 and 2019.

Z-Ben Advisors ranked us the leading manager because of our onshore Chinese strategy and ability to raise Chinese capital, including programs that permit domestic capital to be invested overseas and our usage of fund products into China's inbound investment channels.
