Investing for Equality

We're exploring how we can make serious progress toward gender equality.

Gender-lens wealth

Our latest research shows how people can use their wealth - and the wealth of others - to empower women globally

Women as a force for economic change

Our Chief Investment Officer also commissioned this report to raise awareness about the complexity of the gender gap issue, and find the best ways to address it.

The face of wealth is changing

The face of wealth is changing and becoming more gender-balanced. Women hold a growing share of global private wealth (30% since 2015)* but the financial industry has been slow to respond to their needs.

Our objective is to better serve women. We provide expertise and best-in-class financial solutions for every stage in our clients' lives. Our aim is to be a reliable partner for our clients, who need more than just a bank.

We've also added the Global Gender Equality UCITS ETF to our suite of impact investment products, investing in the Solactive Equileap Global Gender Equality 100 Index (100 global companies chosen on 19 diversity measures like equal compensation, transparency, accountability, gender balance and sustainability policies).

Investing in LGBT

In 2018, UBS launched the InsightShares LGBT Employment Equality ETF, an exchange-traded fund investing in companies that promote equality for LGBT employees in the workplace. Our first ETF in the US will track an index based on a Human Rights Campaign Foundation gauge of corporate equality.
