Meet UBS's Financial Advisor moms who are making a difference.

New York, October 3, 2017 – For the last four years, UBS has been named one of the Top 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers, but for the first time Working Mother and SHOOK Research have included 24 of our Financial Advisors as their "Top Wealth Advisor Moms.'' The list, introduced this year, recognizes mothers who not only successfully balance work and family, but also help their clients achieve the lives they want to lead.

Through an unwavering focus on their clients and a commitment to achieving both professional and personal success, these Advisors represent some of the best of our industry," said Brian Hull, Head of WMA Client Advisory Group, "Congratulations to each of them on this terrific recognition.

Subha Barry, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Working Mother Media, says, “We are proud to honor working mothers who are some of the best and brightest Financial Advisors in the U.S., as well as the moms who have found that flexibility and an entrepreneurial career path have played to their strengths in building lucrative careers and raising a family.”

UBS Financial Advisor Emily Rubin is ranked seventh overall on the inaugural list. To see all of the UBS Advisors who were honored, see the list below, and visit their websites for more information.

UBS is committed to programs for their new parents. In 2016, the firm launched its Career Comeback program in the U.S. and Switzerland, and launched in the UK in 2017. The program enables experienced professionals who have taken a break in their career for two or more years to transition back into the corporate world, and is one of many tools being used to expand the firm’s female talent pipeline. UBS is aiming to increase its ratio of women in management roles, and recognizes that these types of innovative programs will promote the hiring and retention of the best talent. UBS's All Bar None Network has also been created to engage, educate and empower employees to promote the professional advancement of women at UBS, and encourages professional development through workshops, mentorship and events.

The firm also provides 16-weeks of paid child care leave to primary care givers. The New Parent Coaching program helps new parents navigate parenthood while also ensuring a successful transition in and out of the workplace by offering a dedicated parenting coach to advise new parents before they begin their leave, while they are on leave, and after they return to work.
