UBS News Alert

January 2020

  1. Respondents cite emerging markets' growth as the top reason for their positive view on stocks
  2. UBS Fondcenter will be combined with Clearstream's Fund Desk to create a leading global B2B fund distribution platform with approximately USD 230bn in Assets under Administration (AuA). As part of the transaction, UBS and Clearstream will enter into long-term commercial cooperation arrangements. Increased scale and breadth of capabilities and extended local presence are expected to provide a compelling proposition for distributors and fund providers. Upon closing, which is currently expected in the second half of 2020, UBS expects to recognize a post-tax gain of approximately USD 600 million and CET1 capital increase of approximately USD 400 million.
  3. UBS delivered solid full-year 2019 results in mixed market conditions.
  4. • There remains a significant 'climate finance gap'. If we are to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, the OECD estimates more than USD 90 trillion is needed in infrastructure investment. • There is clear investor appetite for directing capital toward a lower-carbon future but a lack of climate-smart solutions to close the finance gap. • Investors need actionable tools and techniques to guide their capital allocation now and UBS has developed a Climate Aware framework to help investors reach their climate goals. • Private wealth clients can also use UBS's new Advice SI program to customize portfolios focused on climate change and other specific sustainable investing (SI) issues. • UBS is calling for greater collaboration across the public sector, business and academia to fully quantify the financial risks of climate change and identify investment opportunities. • Realigning capital will depend heavily on data; UBS is calling for more companies to adopt the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) guidelines which would significantly improve the availability of relevant data.
  5. Nathalie Rachou and Mark Hughes to be nominated for election to the Board of Directors of UBS Group AG at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting. David Sidwell and Isabelle Romy not standing for re-election.
  6. UBS invites you to the presentation of its fourth-quarter and full-year 2019 results on Tuesday, 21 January 2020. The results will be presented by Sergio P. Ermotti, Group Chief Executive Officer, Kirt Gardner, Group Chief Financial Officer, Martin Osinga, Investor Relations, and Mark Hengel, Communications & Branding.

November 2019

  1. Amid policy uncertainty, core recommendations include quality and dividend-paying stocks, while emerging industry standards should make sustainable investing even more approachable for investors in coming years.
  2. Wealthy investors are cautious on 2020 but optimistic on the decade ahead, UBS Investor Watch survey finds. More than 80% of respondents are interested in aligning their portfolios with long-term mega-trends.
  3. Findings come as billionaire wealth dips in 2018, following five years of growth
  4. New, jointly-owned investment bank combines local knowledge with global reach
