The Personal Financial Assistant learns as it goes along so that it can help clients more effectively. The new Personal Financial Assistant function will also be available soon on the UBS mobile banking app.
Comprehensive notification service
Thanks to the comprehensive notification service, clients can decide for themselves what they want to be informed about via SMS or e-mail: account transactions, the balance of their accounts, credit card purchases and amounts still available, the status of payments and stock exchange orders or incoming messages in their personal mailbox in UBS e-banking. Clients can also send their advisor secure messages or request a phone call using the callback function.
Fast access to financial market data
The new UBS Quotes function provides clients with a practical overview of the latest developments on the financial markets and gives them fast access to the financial information they really need. They can also decide to set up a virtual portfolio and try out different investment strategies without taking any risks.
Open accounts and order cards online
The new UBS e-banking platform also lets clients open various accounts online. They can currently choose between personal and savings accounts, current accounts and products for retirement savings in pillar 3a or 3b. Clients can also order debit, credit and prepaid cards quickly and easily.
UBS Mobile Banking – the bank that's always with you
UBS introduced the new Mobile Banking app back in July. It is available for both iOS and android smartphones. In addition to the usual functions such as checking credits, debits and the balance of their accounts, the app now enables clients execute payments directly and consult financial information or trade securities with UBS Quotes. The app also provides clients with information about all their credit and prepaid card purchases. The app was recently awarded a bronze in the business category of the “Best of Swiss Apps Awards”.
Security is the top priority
The security of its online services is a top priority for UBS. The bank relies on the highest security standards and state-of-the-art technology for its access solutions. The login involves a two-stage process using the protected access data on an access card and a PIN.
