As part of the UBS Nobel Perspectives program, our webinar series allows you to ask your questions directly to Nobel Laureates in Economic Sciences.

UBS Nobel Perspectives addresses the questions shaping our world, cutting through the noise, and holding the largest content library of Nobel Laureate interviews.

Jean Tirole won the Nobel prize in 2014 for his analysis of market common good and regulation. Jean Tirole’s research and regulation theories have changed how market regulation is applied to industries far and wide and broadened the scope of what competition can look like. The Nobel Laureate is also a best-selling author and distinguished professor. He joined Massimiliano Castelli, Global Head of Strategy, Global Sovereign Markets at UBS Asset Management, in a webinar on 30th September to discuss the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on topics including technology, globalization and sustainability.

In a time where everything is still uncertain, it's hard to know what's real and what's fake. UBS Nobel Perspectives addresses the questions shaping our world, cutting through the noise and nonsense, and holds the largest content library of Nobel Laureate interviews.

Audience Q&A

Want to know more about sustainability at UBS?

At UBS we pride ourselves on being a sustainable investing center of excellence. The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the way to a sustainable future. We've joined forces with BOTTLETOP, a sustainable accessories brand who created #TOGETHERBAND to raise awareness and funds for the goals.

17 goals, 17 bands. You get two bands – one to wear, one to share. And all the profits go to projects working towards the goals. It centers around the conviction that none of the goals, including SDG #13, Climate Action, can be achieved without collective, multi-sector action.
