UBS FI Principal Delivering differentiation by applying focus

Quoting more accurately, offering more reliability

UBS took a proactive stance to market structure and regulation change to create a more targeted approach to FI. We have created new pricing and hedging models which have led to more efficiencies. Harnessing the power of technology has enabled UBS to manage market risk efficiently while reliably providing liquidity to our clients.


We can now quote more accurately, enabling us to offer clients much tighter and more consistent pricing in US Treasuries and German, Italian and French Government Bonds, with the recent addition of Austria, Netherlands, Belgium and Finland.

Consistently high hit rate Revised algorithms provide enhanced performance

UBS harnesses the power of technology. Our new robust algorithms access more data sources and respond faster, as evidenced by a consistent top 5 hit rate by trade count for US Treasuries since November 20141, regardless of market volatility.

Reducing costs, reducing uncertainty

Our clients can benefit from reduced costs of execution because electronic trading has made FI Principal more competitive1. There is also the reassurance of trading with a trusted counterparty in UBS and the fact that ‘follow the sun’ trading gives our clients the flexibility to determine their trading day.

Intellectual capital
