The global access and opportunity of UBS Private Wealth Management

Through the exclusive UBS Private Wealth Management division, our team can truly “deliver the firm”—accessing our global investment and banking platforms and the financial and intellectual strengths of our experts worldwide. Whatever your objective—growing wealth, leveraging wealth or transferring wealth—we are ready to help you address the challenge.

Advanced planning

Working with our advanced planning team, we take an integrated approach to understanding all areas of your complex financial life. We address your priorities within the context of the current legislative and tax landscape, which could affect your wealth today and tomorrow.

Family and Philanthropy Advisory Services

Working with this team of specialists, our approach looks beyond the purely financial to include wealth transfer, family governance and charitable giving opportunities. We’ll facilitate meetings and provide education, communication and events to help prepare the next generation for carrying on your legacy.

Strategic philanthropy

We’re committed to helping you develop a charitable giving program that reflects your vision and your values, but also aligns strategically with your overall wealth plan.

Portfolio Advisory Group

A truly customized portfolio should be informed by insights that align with your goals. The Portfolio Advisory Group provides us with advanced quantitative analysis and proprietary research for a dynamic asset allocation designed to address your specific needs.

Insurance review

Our team views insurance as a tool to help protect your family’s assets, replace income and create a legacy for future generations and philanthropic beneficiaries.

Wealth management research

By drawing upon our investment analysis and the global body of thought leadership and market insight of our Chief Investment Office (CIO), we help ensure our clients are receiving the firm’s best strategic and tactical allocation guidance.

The UBS Investment Bank

If you’re considering the sale of your business, we can help assemble the right presale advisory team, including coordinating with our investment banking team for insight into structuring your transaction, appraisals and valuations. We’ll help ensure you take the right steps at the right time to make the most of your sale.

Distinct clients. Diverse lives.

No matter where you are in your life or career, whatever your personal or professional challenges, we tailor our advice to the priorities you have today and the goals you hope to achieve tomorrow.

There are so many factors that come into play when you’re considering selling your business. While it’s never an easy decision, our involvement in the very early stages of your thinking can add important insight into helping you exit strategically—and confidently—from what’s likely one of the most significant investments of your life.

Whether you’re an established executive seeking to take a more significant role in household financial decisions, or you’d like to improve your current balance sheet, we believe good planning insight is necessary—no matter where you are in your life. Our process focuses on you, your priorities and the beliefs that can either hinder or empower you to take your finances to the next level. We can provide thoughtful advice to help you pursue your most important goals with confidence.

Senior executives often have a number of critical planning needs—from tax-efficient management of complex equity compensation to guidance on the financial implications of career transition. Whether you are executing stock options or selling shares within a corporate window, we can educate you about your choices and the impact they may have on your overall wealth plan.

Building a lasting family legacy is about communication and financial responsibility—across generations. We’ll help you and your family clarify your vision and your values so we can educate the next in line.

Planning helps guide you forward

Our team has the insight and broad access to UBS resources to provide comprehensive planning advice and opportunities from across the firm and around the globe. We’re committed to being proactive and collaborative.

Guided by our planning tool, Financial Goal Analysis (FGA), we provide custom assessment of your current financial situation, which helps create a road map for moving forward. Our team offers a balanced point of view as you face each life event, navigate retirement or plan your legacy.

Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy.
Our process starts with questions and a discussion that help us focus on what’s really important to you. Then, we can help you organize your financial life into three key strategies: Liquidity—to help provide cash flow for short-term expenses, Longevity—for longer-term needs and Legacy—for needs that go beyond your own.
