Where do women stand today?

In the last few years, the world has changed in fundamental ways. Everyone has a point of view about those changes, but we can all agree it’s been a catalyst for reevaluation on every level. In our latest UBS Own Your Worth research, we discovered, for women especially, it has stirred a desire to focus on a greater sense of purpose. Here’s how.

Women and investing

Reimagining advice

At UBS we want to create an inclusive system that serves both men and women so everyone can be financially confident, have a greater impact with their wealth, and secure it for future generations starting now.

Creating an impact

Empowering women through philanthropy

Did you know that a study by the World Bank found that every additional year of education for a girl increases her future earning potential by 10-20 percent and every additional year of secondary school can boost her earning potential by 15-25 percent?

Through philanthropy and social finance, our clients and employees support women and girls to give them the tools to reach their full potential, because when they are empowered, they can more effectively contribute to their families, communities and economies. This has a powerful ripple effect on positive social and economic outcomes for everyone.

Celebrating the women of economics

Every year on International Women’s Day, we commemorate the social, economic, and political achievements of women around the world.

This year, we’re celebrating two women who have shaped economics, both with their discoveries and by breaking gender barriers.
