October 2015

  1. UBS expects an average nominal wage increase of 0.5% in Switzerland for 2016. Falling consumer prices and the strength of the Swiss franc dominate wage negotiations in the present economic environment. Given the negative annual inflation forecast for 2016, even sectors with an expected nominal zero pay increase may incur an average real wage increase of 0.4%.
  2. UBS invites you to the presentation of its third quarter 2015 results on Tuesday, 3 November 2015. The results will be presented by Sergio P. Ermotti, Group Chief Executive Officer, Tom Naratil, Group Chief Financial Officer and Group Chief Operating Officer, Caroline Stewart, Global Head of Investor Relations and Hubertus Kuelps, Group Head of Communications & Branding.
  3. The UBS Consumption Indicator remained virtually unchanged in September, at 1.65 points. In spite of the more pessimistic mood in the retail sector, the slightly renewed rise in new automobile registrations indicates further steady growth in consumption.
  4. UBS announced today the launch of 'Nobel Perspectives', a digital platform that will feature around 40 filmed interviews with Nobel Laureates in Economics.
  5. UBS Asset Management has added a comprehensive suite of investment funds onto the mFund settlement service.
