Playing our part
What role does Global Wealth Management play within UBS?
We work with our clients to explore new and bespoke ways of ensuring their return ambitions are met or even exceeded. Our success of our GWM teams hinges on our ability to become trusted advisors to our clients, demonstrating a strong understanding of the whole range of their current and future needs, and being there for them at every step of their journey. GWM is at the core 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 UBS’s unique global scale and diversified financing, global capital markets, and portfolio solutions. We also ensure we are a step ahead of emerging investment trends. For example, we are leading experts in sustainable investments, helping clients invest in ways that generate returns while matching their personal values.
We turn our clients’ vision into a reality.
We offer a wide range of tailored services and solutions to our clients based on their specific, individual needs. Our advisors are supported by a team of experts who work around the global to develop the very best products and solutions to meet these needs. Certain roles within Global Wealth Management are very technical, and some are highly analytical and data-driven. Our team consists of traders, research analysts, product developers, portfolio managers, client advisors and beyond. But what underpins everything we do is a relentless focus on delivering for our clients, regardless of where you sit in our organization.
