UBS AG, Australia Branch is a foreign Authorised Deposit-taking Institution ("foreign ADI") under the Banking Act 1959 (Cth), and is supervised by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority. However, it is important for you to note that should you make a deposit with UBS AG, Australia Branch in connection with the services UBS AG, Australia Branch provides you, that deposit will not be covered by the provisions in the Banking Act 1959 (Cth) for the protection of depositors as those provisions do not apply to foreign ADI's including UBS AG, Australia Branch. For example, depositors with foreign ADIs do not receive the benefit of the following protections:

  • Deposits are not covered by the financial claims scheme and are not guaranteed by the Australian Government;
  • Depositors do not receive priority ahead of amounts owed to other creditors. This means that if a foreign ADI was unable to meet its obligations or suspends payment, its depositors in Australia would not receive priority for repayment of their deposits from the foreign ADI's assets in Australia;
  • A foreign ADI is not required to hold assets in Australia to cover its deposit liabilities in Australia. This means that if the foreign ADI was unable to meet its obligations or suspends payment it is uncertain whether depositors would be able to access the full amount of their deposit.

UBS AG’s subsidiaries in Australia are not authorised deposit-taking institutions under the Banking Act 1959 (Cth). Unless otherwise described in applicable product or transaction documentation provided to you, the obligations of those subsidiaries do not represent deposits or other liabilities of UBS AG and UBS AG does not stand behind, support or guarantee those subsidiaries in any way.
