UBS strategy and business model

UBS has crafted its business strategy to benefit from one underlying global trend: the growth of wealth. Despite the current financial crisis, the firm believes that over the long term wealth creation will continue to be a prominent characteristic of the world economy. UBS’s three core businesses of wealth management, asset management and investment banking are geared to take advantage of this trend.

Organizationally, UBS has operated throughout 2008 as a Group with three business divisions: Global Wealth Management & Business Banking, Global Asset Management and the Investment Bank. As announced on 10 February 2009, Global Wealth Management & Business Banking has been divided into two business divisions: Wealth Management & Swiss Bank and Wealth Management Americas. Each business division is accountable for its own results, but co-operates to provide a broad palette of cross-business solutions for clients. UBS considers the breadth and depth of its offering to be one of its main strengths, and a key to its ability to create value for clients and shareholders.

Wealth Management & Swiss Bank
UBS’s wealth management business caters to high net worth and affluent individuals around the world (except those served by Wealth Management Americas) whether they are investing internationally or in their home country. UBS offers these clients a complete range of tailored advice and investment services. Its Swiss Bank business provides a complete set of banking services for Swiss individual and corporate clients.

Wealth Management Americas
Wealth Management Americas offers sophisticated products and services specifically designed to address the needs of high net worth and affluent individuals. It includes Wealth Management US, domestic Canada, domestic Brazil and the international business booked in the United States.

Global Asset Management
As a worldwide asset manager, UBS offers innovative investment management solutions in nearly every asset class to

private, corporate and institutional clients, as well as through financial intermediaries. Investment capabilities include traditional assets (for instance equities, fixed income and asset allocation), alternative and quantitative investments (multi-manager funds, funds of hedge funds and hedge funds) and real estate.

Investment Bank
In the investment banking and securities businesses, UBS provides securities products and research in equities, fixed income, rates, foreign exchange and metals. It also provides advisory services as well as access to the world’s capital markets for corporate, institutional, intermediary and alternative asset management clients.
