Past & Present


Together with the UBS Foundation for Social Issues and Education, the UBS Culture Foundation was established in 1999, after Swiss Bank Corporation (SBV) and Union Bank of Switzerland (SBG) merged to become UBS.


In their over 100-year history both these institutions had developed a tradition of supporting cultural, social and charitable ventures in manifold ways.
