Global Banking

Work across a wide range of products, sectors and geographies and create truly bespoke solutions for our clients.

Big decisions.

Our insight helps clients gain the best results.

Global Banking is a people and trust-focused business. We guide our clients through mergers and acquisitions, assist them with raising capital and design bespoke solutions.

Our clients rely on the insights our people provide from data and experience across UBS to make big decisions. Executions of equity capital markets and debt capital market transactions are becoming more automated, which is why we stay ahead of the curve with decisions informed by technology and data. The landscape we face is constantly changing and we need to transform our approach and services accordingly.

Playing our part

Global Banking within UBS

We provide two key services to our clients; advice and access.

We advise clients on strategic changes in their business through mergers and acquisitions (buying and selling businesses). We are differentiated by the data offering which we can provide our clients through insights from the UBS Evidence Lab. We provide access to capital markets for our clients in public and private forms, across equity, bonds and loans.

The foundation of our business is trust, and our relationships are formed over many years. We support our clients over the long-haul and across time zones. Our unique structure allows us to work across products, sectors and geographies offering individualized solutions to our clients across US, APAC and Europe.

You don’t need a finance or business degree to apply to one of our programs. We want students who have an active interest in current affairs and are hungry to learn.

Hear from our people

My two years in Global Banking have by far been the most rewarding given the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry, on significant transactions that truly have the potential to shape their respective sectors and make front-page headlines. Global Banking offers a dynamic environment, which I think is conducive to learning and development, and I have enjoyed working with different personalities who come together to produce great results for our clients.
