Gender

Women around the world are transforming society. Here are just two examples:

  • Women control 32% of the world's wealth and are increasing their wealth faster than before—adding $5 trillion to the wealth pool globally every year (Boston Consulting Group: Managing the Next Decade of Women's Wealth, April 09, 2020)
  • 85% of women manage day-to-day expenses equally or more than their partners / spouses (UBS Investor Watch Global Insights / 2019 Volume 1)

At UBS, increasing our gender diversity is a strategic priority. We want to support and enable more women to build long and satisfying careers here, and we're especially working to increase the representation of women at senior management levels. Here we take a multi-pronged approach, examining the process, culture and organization design elements around hiring, promoting and retaining women at all levels and we have aspirations to grow our senior representation of women to 30% by 2025 across the firm.
