Operational structure

The operational structure of our firm comprises the business divisions as well as Group Functions:

Personal & Corporate Banking

Personal & Corporate Banking provides comprehensive financial products and services to UBS’s private, corporate and institutional clients in Switzerland, maintaining a leading position in these segments and embedding its offering in a multi-channel approach.

The business is a central element of UBS’s universal bank delivery model in Switzerland, supporting other business divisions by referring clients and growing the wealth of the firm’s private clients so they can be transferred to Wealth Management.
