Working together to help you pursue what matters most.

Significant wealth brings complexity. UBS Wealth Way helps you think about your life and wealth along three key strategies: Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy. Each is designed to work in tandem throughout your life and beyond. Together, we’ll look at every aspect of your wealth—including nurturing your family’s financial, social, and human capital. All so that we can help pass on your values and your legacy today, tomorrow and for generations to come.

Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy.

Our approach starts with questions and a discussion that help us focus on what’s really important to you. Then, we can  help you organize your financial life into three key strategies: Liquidity—to help provide cash flow for short-term expenses, Longevity—for longer-term needs and Legacy—for needs that go beyond your own.


To help maintain your lifestyle

This strategy helps you manage cash flow for near-term expenses. It can give you the confidence to fund short-term needs regardless of the markets, and helps reduce the likelihood of making impulsive investment decisions during periods of market volatility. 

  • Entertainment and travel
  • Taxes
  • Purchasing a home


To help improve the lives of others

This strategy includes the resources you’ll need over the course of your life. It can help you gain confidence in your future by allowing you to shift your focus to meeting long-term goals rather than trying to outperform the markets.

  • Retirement
  • Healthcare and long-term expenses
  • Second home


To help improve the lives of others

This strategy includes all of the resources for needs that go beyond your own. Having a Legacy strategy can boost your confidence by reframing risk based on specific legacy goals and longer timeframes.

  • Giving to family
  • Philanthropy
  • Wealth transfer over generations

Your leadership team.

Your leadership team has deep experience in the sophisticated needs of the wealthy. The team works closely with your Financial Advisor in bringing you the global resources, intellectual capital, and comprehensive solutions the firm has to offer.
