Global reach Local expertise, global access

With on-the-ground traders covering 130 markets worldwide, UBS provides quality, local expertise. Orienting you to a new region or helping you replicate the style of a domestic algorithm in a foreign market are just a couple of the services our specialists can provide.

Open Connectivity How would you like to trade with us?

Our open connectivity policy means you can trade equities, US equity options and futures with us however you prefer - via our own EMS UBS Pinpoint, any of our third party EMS or OMS vendors, or your own proprietary trading systems.

Our full electronic trading suite can be delivered through UBS Pinpoint, or "à la carte". Our overall goal is to help our clients to pursue best execution every day.

Please contact us to find out which platforms and networks we connect to.

Advanced Technology Why settle for bells and whistles, when you can have a competitive edge?

In today's markets, electronic execution providers must anticipate your evolving needs and have a detailed understanding of changing market structure. We need to go beyond delivering mere trading tools.

Our strategies, transaction cost analysis platforms and execution management systems need to be fully integrated with your overall workflow, decision-making and performance management processes.

We also need to meet the challenges of a global, multi-asset marketplace. This means:

  • Delivering real-time market data.
  • Giving you the ability to trade using DMA and UBS algorithms in every major market.
  • Building and maintaining an infrastructure within today's complex global market structure which is equipped to handle any instrument, in any currency, with high speed and broad functionality.  Our own EMS has been developed with this in mind.
  • Providing you with live support that "follows the sun", so no matter where or when you are sending us electronic orders, you can reach a human being at UBS who can not only provide technical support – but also regional trading expertise.

We provide true execution consulting, where high tech meets high touch. And that's how advanced technology can become your competitive advantage.

Protecting your information We maintain procedures and controls to make sure your trading information is as protected as it should be

We understand the impact of information leakage on your execution quality. So that's why we protect your information internally and externally.

Your electronic order information is safeguarded within UBS Electronic Trading - Equities through physical personnel and information barriers and we have put robust policies in place to control access to our order management systems.

Commitment to innovation It's good to have a partner that helps you today. Isn't it better to have one that is ready for tomorrow?

Unsettle what seems to be settled. Challenge "conventional wisdom". Look for the gaps. Keep pushing the envelope. That's what we do, because you should expect no less. Ingenuity is no accident, it's a discipline that must be continually practiced every day.

Our market-leading team1 draws talented people from across the globe and from many fields of expertise, and includes: traders, financial market structure experts, mathematicians and quantitative analysts, technologists, desktop interface designers and software engineers.

What do we offer? Today, execution partners need to deliver more than ever before.
