UBS Global Wealth Management APAC

Today, we are the only global wealth manager with more than US$5 trillion in client assets. UBS has been serving multigenerational billionaires. We have relationships with three out of five billionaires in APAC, all thanks to the close partnerships between the investment bank, asset management and wealth management at UBS.

With a significant wealth transfer to Asia’s next generation to take place over the next decade, our dedicated and expanded family advisory and philanthropy teams as a combined firm will continue to support families in their succession planning journey.

What was behind the judges’ decision?

  • UBS Global Wealth Management laid out a convincing case for how it is providing end-to-end, full lifecycle solutions to family offices in Asia Pacific. This starts from research on key issues such as legacy planning, next generation and thought leadership events; to the drafting of family constitutions, wealth and succession planning; to execution services such as setting up of family councils and investment advisory boards, and the implementation of family governance processes
  • The bank showcases a packed and insightful agenda of relevant content and thought leadership programmes in order to better engage the regional family office and UHNW clientele. These range from flagship family office forums in Shanghai and Singapore to philanthropy seminars, family office academies and a series on next-generation planning
  • Through several in-depth case studies presented to the Awards for Distinction judging panel, UBS Global Wealth Management was able to outline real-life examples of how its UHNW clients in Asia Pacific were benefiting from everything the bank has to offer, ranging from family office establishment and asset allocation to complex financial market transactions. In these cases, the bank was able to convincingly demonstrate how they directly led to more net new assets being placed with UBS Global Wealth Management and an overall deepening of the client relationship

What we said

Asian Private Banker is proud to award UBS Global Wealth Management the prize of Best Private Bank – Family Offices for the fourth year running. This accolade reflects the Swiss powerhouse’s ongoing success in its mission to deliver institutional-grade solutions and insights through its Global Family and Institutional Wealth setup, ranging from top-level access to public and private markets, custom financing, and
seamless coordination between private banking, investment banking, and capital markets,” said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

“UBS Global Wealth Management once again demonstrated to our judging panel that it is the market leader in providing its UHNW and family office clients with all the bank has to offer, whether that’s direct investments, prime brokerage, asset management, or global markets – all areas where the Swiss lender has been ranked by the industry as being best-in-class.

“With the integration of Credit Suisse into UBS Global Wealth Management, the latter’s one-bank proposition is likely to go from strength to strength, with enhanced coverage of Singapore and Southeast Asia across equity and debt capital markets, as well as M&A. Given that reality, UBS Global Wealth Management’s ‘Power of Two’ proposition is a compelling one.”
