What our clients say
Thank you very much for including me on the trip to Liberia. The entire experience was inspiring, fun, informative, productive, and well organized. [You] did an amazing job with the trip logistics, pacing, and safety... [and were] especially impressive leading and moderating the session with former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and the mere fact that she took time to join us is ample testament to the reputation you’ve all built for UBS Optimus.
It was incredibly insightful as a quick tour of a country could possibly be. I enjoyed everyone’s company on the trip; guests and UBS team members. I think it was interesting to observe the different client perspectives. The projects were all amazing and really worthwhile to see, especially with background and in-depth discussion from founders and project directors.
My own philanthropy strategy was empowered and informed. Not just from conversing with and learning from my peers who accompanied me on the trip, but also from unique first-hand insights, anecdotes, and dialogue with project partners on the ground.

Each program is supported by the UBS Optimus Foundation and has been identified as high potential – they’re all seeking to increase their reach and impact through funding from our clients and UBS.
