UBS and its businesses

UBS draws on their 150-year heritage to serve private, institutional and corporate clients worldwide, as well as retail clients in Switzerland. Their business strategy is centered on their pre-eminent global wealth management businesses and their universal bank in Switzerland. Together with a client-focused Investment Bank and a strong, well-diversified Global Asset Management business, they will expand their premier wealth management franchise and drive further growth across the Group. Headquartered in Zurich and Basel, Switzerland, UBS has offices in more than 50 countries, including all major financial centers, and employ approximately 64,000 people. UBS AG is the parent company of the UBS Group (Group). Under Swiss company law, UBS AG is organized as an Aktiengesellschaft, a corporation that has issued shares of common stock to investors.

The operational structure of the Group comprises the Corporate Center and five business divisions:
  • Wealth Management
  • Wealth Management Americas
  • The Investment Bank
  • Global Asset Management
  • Retail & Corporate

Wealth Management delivers comprehensive financial services to wealthy private clients around the world – except those served by Wealth Management Americas. Its clients benefit from the entire spectrum of UBS resources, ranging from investment management to estate planning and corporate finance advice, in addition to specific wealth management products and services. An open product platform provides clients with access to a wide array of products from third-party providers that complement their own product lines. 

Wealth Management Americas provides advice-based solutions through financial advisors who deliver a fully integrated set of products and services specifically designed to address the needs of ultra high net worth and high net worth individuals and families. It includes the domestic US business, the domestic Canadian business and international business booked in the US.

The Investment Bank provides a broad range of products and services in equities, fixed income, foreign exchange and commodities to corporate and institutional clients, sovereign and government bodies, financial intermediaries, alternative asset managers and UBS’s wealth management clients. The Investment Bank is an active participant in capital markets flow activities, including sales, trading and market-making across a broad range of securities. It provides financial solutions to a wide range of clients, and offers advisory and analytics  services in all major capital markets.

Global Asset Management is a large-scale asset manager with businesses diversified across regions, capabilities and distribution channels. It offers investment capabilities and styles across all major traditional and alternative asset classes including equities, fixed income, currencies, hedge fund, real estate, infrastructure and private equity that can also be combined into multi-asset strategies. The fund services unit provides professional services, including fund set-up, accounting and reporting for traditional investment funds and  alternative funds.

Retail & Corporate delivers comprehensive financial products and services to their retail, corporate and  institutional clients in Switzerland. It is an integral part of the universal bank model in Switzerland and delivers growth to their other businesses. It supports them by cross-selling products and services provided by their asset-gathering and investment banking businesses, by referring clients to them and transferring clients to Wealth Management due to increased client wealth.

The Corporate Center provides treasury services, and manages support and control functions for the business divisions and the Group in such areas as risk control, finance, legal and compliance, funding, capital and balance sheet management, management of non-trading risk, communications and branding, human resources, information technology, real estate, procurement, corporate development and service centers. It allocates most of the treasury income, operating expenses and personnel associated with these activities, which we refer to collectively as Corporate Center – Core Functions, to the businesses based on capital and service consumption levels. The Corporate Center also encompasses the Legacy Portfolio, consisting of the centrally managed legacy portfolio formerly in the Investment Bank and the option to acquire the equity of the SNB StabFund.
