Taipei, 12 September 2017﹣ UBS Wealth Management introduces a new trust service today that complements its digital wealth management service, which was launched back in April last year. The new third-party beneficiary trust service addresses client needs for succession planning and ensures that family assets are passed smoothly from one generation to the next.
