Zurich/Basle, 6 February 2018 – For the third consecutive year, UBS has been ranked first in the "Best Private Banking Services Overall – Global" category in Euromoney's annual Private Banking Survey.

UBS also retained its leading position in all segment-specific categories on a global level and took the top spot in the overall category in four regions, including Western Europe and Asia. Notably, UBS reclaimed the global top ranking for "Research and Asset Allocation Advice" and further maintained its number one rankings for "Philanthropic Advice", "SRI/Social Impact Investing" and "Innovative Technology – Client Experience".

Martin Blessing, Co-President of UBS Global Wealth Management said, "It is a privilege to be heading a team which has not only made UBS the largest wealth manager on the planet, but also the acknowledged leader in meeting the needs, expectations and aspirations of wealthy clients around the globe."

“We're very proud to be recognized for our commitment to providing customized, holistic advice to sophisticated clients across a range of markets and segments," said Tom Naratil, Co-President of UBS Global Wealth Management. "In today's dynamic and complex environment, the need for thoughtful guidance has never been greater, and we look forward to continuing to focus on delivering the agility of a boutique firm along with all the capabilities of a premier, truly global wealth manager.”

In total, UBS emerged first in 167 categories across markets, regions, segments, and products and services. The bank is looking forward to building on this success with the recent integration of its wealth management businesses into one division – UBS Global Wealth Management – allowing its clients to more fully benefit from its global scale, and combined expertise and capabilities.
