UBS Public Distribution wins “Best Equity Product” and “Best Commodity Product” at Swiss Derivative Awards 2016

The annual Swiss Derivative Awards ceremony took place on the evening of April 7, 2016 in Zurich. Every year since 2006, awards have been given for innovative products and special services in the Swiss market for structured products.

UBS received the awards for "Best Equity Product 2015" and "Best Commodity Product 2015".

Robin Lemann, Head of Public Distribution Switzerland, who received the award, said:
"I am delighted that we were nominated for three products in the two important areas of equities and commodities, and that we took first place in both categories. Along with our power of innovation, these awards also acknowledge the market presence of UBS on the Swiss market for structured products."

UBS got awarded in the category of Equity Products with UBS Buy on Dips Note on the SMI® (SIX Symbol: BDSMIU).

The UBS Buy on Dips Note on the SMI® helps investors looking for a cost-effective way into the Swiss equity market. In this case the product concept sees price setbacks on the Swiss benchmark index as an opportunity for systematic subsequent purchases at more favorable prices. The proportionate cash element which is not invested in the SMI® attracts quarterly interest at a rate of 3.00 % p.a.

In the category Commodity Product the UBS Lock-In Certificate on UBS Bloomberg CMCI WTI Crude Oil Index (SIX Symbol: WTILIU, WTILOU) was awarded.

The UBS Lock-In Certificate on the CMCI WTI Crude Oil Index makes it easier for investors to get started in the crude oil market, as they are relieved of the pressure to pick the right point to exit. The product structure records interim oil price rises over half-yearly observation periods, so a possible minimum payout is payable at maturity. Provided that a lock-in level is not reached, the structure behaves like a normal tracker certificate at maturity.

The following UBS products were also nominated for an award:
