Traditional investments

The foundation of a well-built portfolio

During a period of economic uncertainty and increased market volatility, building a well-diversified portfolio is increasingly important in helping you properly manage risk and pursue your long-term goals. Traditional investments are a critical element of this strategy. 

By working with your UBS Financial Advisor, you have access to a comprehensive offering of traditional investments, including:

  • Equities — An essential component of a balanced portfolio for long-term investors seeking growth and diversification
  • Municipal bonds — For investors in higher income brackets who want to benefit from tax-advantaged income, relative safety and increased predictability
  • Mutual funds — Offer diversification across asset classes, geographic regions and investing styles
  • Options — For investors who want to express a directional view on stocks, exchange traded funds or indices as well as those seeking to generate premium income from covered call writing, hedging single stock downside risk with protective puts or using index proxy hedges for portfolio protection, or to use leverage to amplify risk and potential returns.
  • Puerto Rico funds — Provide innovative long-term wealth management solutions  through UBS Asset Managers of Puerto Rico, and include equity and fixed-income funds
  • Taxable fixed income — May help offset volatility of other asset classes, giving investors more predictable interest income and repayment of principal. These investments include agency securities, CDs, corporate bonds, mortgage-backed securities, preferred securities and Treasury securities
  • Closed-end funds   May provide investors with enhanced income and with access to asset classes not offered through other fund types.
  • Unit investment trusts (UITs) — Provide access to a broad range of professionally selected fixed portfolios offered in “unit” increments. UITs offer the potential for long-term growth, income, and may be used to invest in short-term themes.
  • Exchange traded products (ETPs) — Offer investors access to multiple asset classes, geographic regions, and investment themes in a potentially tax efficient manner, with intraday liquidity through a securities exchange.
