UBS products and services

The resources to deliver a truly custom experience

An innovative mindset has kept UBS at the forefront of the industry for 160 years and has allowed us to serve our clients exceptionally well in good and bad times alike. With the vast resources of a global powerhouse behind you, you can select from a comprehensive range of products and services to help customize solutions across all dimensions of a client’s financial life. UBS also offers highly distinctive offerings that can set you apart from the competition.

It begins with UBS Wealth Way—a distinctive approach to helping clients pursue what matters most to them.

At UBS, our approach to wealth management focuses on the client and their entire financial life.

We do this by helping clients organize assets into three key strategies: Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy. This approach helps clients understand the big picture and pursue both short and long-term goals, while taking into consideration the inherent variability in the markets. This approach can serve as a basis that enables us to make recommendations suitable for each client’s individual situation.

Comprehensive offerings reimagine the power of investing

UBS offers a full range of brokerage and advisory solutions through an open architecture platform. UBS advisory programs provide professional investment management with ongoing advice and the ability to delegate discretion to a Financial Advisor, UBS or a third-party manager. The offerings include a digital portfolio program that pairs Advisor insights with professionally managed portfolios and modern technology. UBS took a leading role in providing clients with access to select SMAs with no additional investment manager fee (Zero Fee)—giving Advisors the ability to deliver cost-effective solutions.

The platform includes:

  • 800 separately managed accounts
  • 3,000 mutual funds
  • 1,200 ETFs (exchange-traded funds)
  • Plus additional types of securities and alternative investments

UBS is one of the largest managers in alternatives, giving the firm a distinct advantage point in the market and affording the ability to provide clients access to assets that are uncorrelated to traditional asset classes—a key differentiator in volatile times. Offerings include hedge funds, private equity, real estate and private debt.
