A global wealth management leader.

About us

With a 150-year history and a network of offices in over 50 countries on 5 continents, UBS has extensive experience managing the wealth of high net worth and ultra high net worth individuals.

Our global strategy is centered on strengthening UBS’s leading Wealth Management Americas franchise while integrating and finding synergies among the Investment Bank and Asset Management divisions to deliver outstanding solutions for our clients.

U.S. Office of Public Policy

The U.S. Office of Public Policy at UBS Americas serves as a link between the public and private sectors, and manages the relationships between UBS and the U.S. federal government. This relationship takes us through the halls of Congress and the White House to:

  • Monitor changes in legislation and regulations that affect our industry in the domestic and international marketplace.
  • Interact with industry associations, elected officials and their staffs.
  • Review jurisdictional committee agendas, and meet frequently with industry peers.

When pending federal legislation is relevant to UBS, we consult and work with the appropriate business units on strategy and outcome. The Office of Public Policy and Government Relations is housed in the UBS Americas offices in Washington, D.C.

Protecting client data—business continuity

UBS AG is committed to taking reasonable steps to provide protection for essential activities should any event disrupt normal business operations. UBS AG has developed a rigorous Business Continuity Management (BCM) program to maintain the highest standards of resiliency at all times during our daily practices. The BCM group is an integral part of UBS' normal business operations.

UBS AG recognizes its responsibility to help protect global financial systems and, as such, meets regulatory guidelines and recommendations through a global, regional and structured approach. UBS AG’s BCM program considers various levels and types of disruptions that might affect a building, business district, city or a wide-scale condition within a region or multiple regions. A dedicated team of business continuity professionals ensure that recovery plans are documented, reviewed and tested.

UBS AG is committed to ensuring that its BCM program is comprehensive and up-to-date, particularly as new information, techniques, and technologies become available. UBS AG actively engages with industry bodies to develop and enhance resiliency within the financial sector and partners closely with regulatory bodies to advance Business Continuity planning in all regions. Although we have taken significant steps to develop and implement sound business recovery plans, we cannot guarantee that systems will always be available or recoverable after a disaster or significant business disruption.  However, we believe that our planning for such events is robust and consistent with many of the best practices established within the industry enabling an effective response that safeguards the interests of our key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value-creating activities.
