Helping you pursue your passions

At UBS, we understand that your wealth is about far more than your portfolio, and we share the passion and commitment many of our clients have for art.

This commitment translates into a rich program of initiatives, including the UBS Art Collection, recognized as one of the most significant corporate collections of contemporary art in the world, our partnership with Art Basel, the globally recognized contemporary art fair, and collaborations with some of the most iconic museums and institutions around the world.

In Italy we support and promote art initiatives through partnerships with prestigious museums, institutions and art foundations, allowing us to organize previews, exclusive events and unique experiences for our clients.
