How we support our communities Through giving time. Through sharing skills. Through donations. With commitment.

At UBS we strive to make a positive impact across the geographical areas in which we operate, working with partners and local communities to build prosperous and healthy societies.


Our approach

Our community investment focuses on developing skills through support for education and entrepreneurship. We believe that this is a highly effective way by which we, as a firm, can tackle disadvantage. We achieve impact through a combination of strategic funding and employee volunteering.

UBS employees are key to the success of our community program. We encourage staff to support our local communities by offering up to two volunteer days a year and matching employee donations to charities.
