Our approach

Why UBS?

With over 150 years of experience, we’ve experienced a lot of different clients and situations. We know how important it is to respond quickly to market events to protect and grow your money. Our aim is to become a reliable partner who really understands you, and who’ll be there for you long term. You need more than just a bank. You need a companion to help you through all of life's ups and downs.

We help you look at the big picture

Chief Investment Office

Our Chief Investment Office (CIO) has investment specialists across the globe working to understand the bigger picture (and how your investments fit in to it). We use their research to form the UBS House View, our monthly outlook for the next six months in the markets. Our Portfolio Management team makes sure your portfolio reflects our analysts’ most up to date ideas. But, of course, we have the flexibility to snap up interesting short-term investment opportunities wherever we spot them.

Our biggest strength is the combination of our global capabilities and local expertise, allowing us to identify investment opportunities and risks for our clients.
