Playing our part

What role does Global Wealth Management play within UBS?

As clients look for yield and have to work their assets harder to meet their return ambitions, the importance of holistic, high-quality advice increases. Global Wealth Management is at the heart of UBS’s business, but we work with all parts of the firm to bring the best of UBS to our clients. Connecting clients to our investment banking teams for example gives them access to our unique global scale and diversified financing, global capital markets, and portfolio solutions.

Strong client relationships and a commitment to delivering outstanding service drive our business. During these challenging times, clients need our advice more than ever. We work to bring the best of UBS to clients no matter what markets are doing right now.

Client Advisor Assistants

Delivering an exceptional service and experience for our clients is a team effort, but it also takes the personal touch.

Hear from our people

Raymond, who retired in 2021, joined UBS 45 years ago. He enjoyed working at UBS throughout his long career just as much as he did on day one. Why? “I’m passionate about my team and my job, and UBS has plenty of room for people like me who want to chart their own course. They also really care about their employees and they gave me lots of opportunities during my career, so it never felt like being with the same firm for more than 45 years.”
