Shanghai, September 6, 2021——UBS Securities Co., Limited (UBS Securities) is pleased to announce an expansion of its strategic collaboration with Wind, China's leading financial data, information and software services company. Users of Wind Financial Terminals and the Wind Mobile app will now be able to access UBS research via a paid subscription, which will provide an array of market-leading digitalized investment insights. UBS Securities has become the first broker to collaborate with Wind on this innovative business model.
Dr. Eugene QIAN, Chairman of UBS Securities said: "Ever since UBS Securities began operations in China, 15 years ago, we have sought to meet the evolving needs of our growing client base. We have long been a leader in research and believe that investment research capabilities are set to become one of the key differentiators of brokers in the future. Through a strategic alliance with Wind we are exploring new channels of cooperation which will allow more professional investors in China to enjoy our investment research services digitally and with better experience.”
Eric LIN, Head of Research, UBS Securities said: "Since our strategic partnership with Wind first started at the end of last year we have been pleased by the level of interest among Chinese investors for UBS’s research, from corporate financial analysis and industry research to the big data analytics provided by UBS Evidence Lab. UBS's China research team has been recognized by domestic and foreign investors for many years and ranks first among international investment banks1, and we look forward to bringing their best-in-class research to even more investors through our expanded partnership with Wind.”
Changkun CAI, Vice President of Wind said: ”UBS’s global research capabilities have been widely recognized for many years and UBS Securities, as the earliest international investment bank in China, focuses on providing insightful research on A-shares and overseas markets. Those strengths clearly complement the real-time financial information capabilities of Wind, which are used by many domestic and foreign financial institutions in China. This new step in our relationship will allow these professional investors to read UBS’s research via Wind’s platform, giving them convenient access to leading global perspectives.”
UBS Securities’ research covers a wide range of topics including macro, strategic, quantitative, ESG, industry and corporate research. This is comprised of the traditional research platform of UBS Research and, since 2014, the insight-ready datasets created by the 45 specialized laboratories of UBS Evidence Lab. In addition, in July 2020 UBS launched China 360, a thematic research offering to provide a direct window into one of the world’s most dynamic economies, connecting the dots across macro and industry themes to navigate a rapidly-evolving landscape.
