Working in... Risk

As one of the world's leading global financial services firms, taking risk is an integral part of UBS's business. The aim is to achieve an appropriate balance between risk and return, based on an informed assessment of potential risk developments in all conditions.

Risk promotes good risk management and control throughout UBS. We establish acceptable boundaries for risk-taking activity in all areas of the business. Our goal is to foster an environment where revenues can grow and shareholder value can be created without jeopardizing stability or compromising UBS's reputation.

Our policies, practices and procedures are inspired by five fundamental principles: business management and accountability; independent controls; risk disclosure; earnings protection and reputation protection. As UBS management takes responsibility for risk, enforcement of these principles flows from the top of the organization.

We offer talented individuals opportunities for professional development in a challenging, fast-paced environment. Reflecting the wide scope of our activities, you may focus on the traditional banking risks of credit risk, liquidity and funding risk and market risk. Alternatively, your job may address the many and varied operational risks inherent in our business, such as compliance risk, legal risk, security risk, tax risk or transaction processing risk.

Whatever your role, our culture of performance will recognize your individual contribution to our collective success. Our pursuit of world-class standards will provide the setting for you to further develop your professional skills and competencies.

As UBS is at the forefront of industry developments, you will have the advantage of working with the latest methods and state-of-the-art tools. Our working environment is supportive and team-oriented. You will share knowledge and exchange ideas with like-minded people from all over the world who, like you, are committed to excellence in everything that they do.
