We are UBS And this is our story


Our heritage Our bank has seen many highs and some lows since it was ­founded in 1862. The size and international reach of Swiss banking were significantly influenced by UBS.

Our vision We want to create superior value for our clients, ­ shareholders and employees. And we want to stand out as a winner in our industry: for our expertise, ­advice and execution, our contribution to society, our work environment, and our business success.

Our strategy Our direction is focused and clear. We aim to be the world’s leading wealth manager and the ­premier universal bank in Switzerland, enhanced by an ­asset manager and investment bank which are ­world-class in their chosen areas of focus. This powerful combination – working in partnership – is the right model for our clients and UBS.

Our three keys to success Three keys help us achieve our vision and execute our ­strategy. They determine how we work with our stakeholders and each other, how we recruit, and how we make decisions.

Our Pillars The foundation for everything we do.

Capital strength We value superior capital strength. It gives us the flexibility to address expected and unexpected events, and is a unique competitive advantage which our clients value.

Efficiency and ­effectiveness We spend smartly and use the best ideas from banking and beyond to unlock the full potential of the firm.

Risk management Successful banking is about successful risk ­management. At all times we aim to protect the capital and reputation of UBS.

Our Principles What we stand for as a firm.

Client focus We always act in the spirit of partnership with our clients’ best interests at heart.

Excellence We strive for excellence in everything we do. From the people we employ to the expertise, advice and execution we provide.

Sustainable ­performance We focus on the long-term and work to provide consistent returns to our stakeholders.

Our Behaviors What we stand for individually.

Integrity We are responsible and accountable for what we say and do, and for UBS’s reputation. We care about our clients, our investors and our ­colleagues. We act as role models by treating others the way we would like to be treated.

Collaboration We put the benefits of our clients and the firm before our own or those of our business. We work across the firm. We respect and value diverse perspectives.

Challenge We encourage ourselves and others to ­constructively question the status quo. We learn from past mistakes and experiences. We speak up if we see something that does not  exemplify our high standards.

Winning together There’s been a lot of change at UBS in the past few years. Be in no doubt about our determination to stick to our plans. We have the momentum and everything we need to make UBS a winner in our industry for the long term. A firm that we will continue to be proud of.

We are UBS.

We, not just me: that’s how we work We all collaborate. We challenge each other. We act with integrity – respecting and trusting one another. That’s what makes partnerships with our colleagues and clients successful and long lasting. It’s also what sets us apart as an employer.

People. Perspectives. Personalities.
