Understanding our fees, charges and other compensation.

At UBS, we offer our clients access to a wealth of powerful financial resources. In addition to the relationship you have with your Financial Advisor, a key part of your relationship with UBS involves making sure you understand our fees, charges and other compensation.

As you benefit from the broad scope of products and services of a leading global firm—whether we act as your broker-dealer, investment adviser or both—we believe it is important that you know the various ways we are compensated for our services. That's why we have created "Understanding our fees, charges and other compensation. (PDF, 399 KB) "

This overview brings you vital information about:


  • How we are paid by you
  • How your Financial Advisor is compensated

  • Payments we receive from third parties for select products and services

  • Potential conflicts of interest resulting from our compensation structures
  • Additional references to keep you informed

Of course, our relationship with you is about much more than explaining our fees and charges. It's also about maintaining clear and honest communications among you, your Financial Advisor and our firm about all aspects of your relationship with us. To that end, you will find important additional information in our account information and disclosures, which we provide to you when you open an account and when you invest in certain products or receive certain services at UBS.

While we strive to make sure the nature of our services is clear in the materials we publish, if at any time you would like more information about the features of your accounts or the services we offer, please contact your Financial Advisor.

As always, printed copies of our materials are available upon request.
