Sustainable Investing

Are you climate aware?

At UBS Asset Management, we are committed to the future of sustainable investing and to UN platforms to support sustainability and address climate change.

Committing to climate change not only benefits the planet, but provides significant investment opportunities and the potential for enhanced projected returns across nearly all asset classes, regions and timeframes.

While climate investing may have been considered a trend in the past, it has now become the new normal for today’s investors.
