Reimagining the power of investing. Connecting people for a better world.

Mission

At UBS, we reimagine the power of people and investments to create a better world for all of us – a world that’s fair and sustainable.

Making connections is at the heart of what we do. Connecting people with each other. Connecting people with ideas that deliver results and drive progress and innovation. Connecting people with opportunities that change people’s lives and help to forge a more equal society.

 From our Swiss roots to our global reach, and with 160 years of history, we know the true meaning of long-term commitment. We give the insight and advice to inspire, connect and empower people – to create better outcomes for today and future generations

Diversity & Inclusion

At UBS, we take a broad approach to diversity. We focus on gender, ethnicity, LGBTQ+, disability, and mental health, among other aspects, with inclusive leadership and increased representation of diverse-heritage employees becoming more prominent in recent years. In the near term, however, increasing gender and ethnic diversity remains our highest strategic priority. We have a clear mandate to hire, promote and retain more women and people from ethnic minorities across the firm, especially in management roles.

Benefits

Employee wellbeing is extremely important to us, and that's why we offer competitive benefits to all employees across the firm. Our benefits programs often go above and beyond legal requirements and cover:

  • Physical wellbeing – Our benefits work to enhance employees' physical health and to protect against unforeseen events. A range of offerings, including insurance coverage and wellness programs, are available in all of our locations.
  • Mental wellbeing – Our Employee Assistance Program offers support and counseling to employees and their immediate family as they go through life’s challenges. We teamed up with an external provider to promote mindfulness and support resiliency in managing stress. We also offer generous time-off benefits, along with a variety of paid and unpaid leave options and flexible working opportunities to fit your personal needs.
  • Financial wellbeing – We're an equal opportunity employer, committed to pay equity for all employees. We also understand how important retirement and financial planning are to employees, and that's why we provide comprehensive pension plans and an employee stock purchase plan.
  • Social wellbeing – Through the UBS Optimus Foundation we drive impactful philanthropy that delivers real solutions for social needs. To complement this, we match employee charitable donations and provide paid leave for employees to volunteer their time on community and environmental initiatives, in addition to UBS-organized community events. In fact, our employees logged 202,784 volunteer hours in 2019.

Culture

Despite the fact that we all come from different backgrounds and specialize in a variety of areas, there are two things that unite us: a steady belief that we’re stronger together, and the willingness and curiosity to constantly learn and innovate. And, it’s what we look for in everyone who joins us.

Our culture is our way to achieve our purpose and strategy. Our purpose is why we do what we do, our culture is the way we do it.

Our three keys

Our strong and inclusive culture is grounded in our three keys to success: our Pillars, Principles, and Behaviors. They determine what we’re built on, what we stand for and how we do it.

  • Our Pillars: What we’re built on
  • Capital strength – a balance sheet for all seasons
  • Simplification and efficiency – make it easy to do business
  • Risk management – anticipate and handle risk effectively
  • Our Principles: What we stand for.
  • Client centricity – clients are at the heart of everything we do
  • Connectivity – create success by connecting people, ideas and opportunities
  • Sustainable impact – act today with tomorrow in mind
  • Our Behaviors: How we do it
  • Accountability with integrity – take ownership
  • Collaboration – work as one UBS
  • Innovation – improve every day

Social impact

UBS's goal is to be the financial provider of choice for clients wishing to mobilize capital towards the achievement of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the orderly transition to a low carbon economy (the Paris Agreement). We work towards this goal by integrating sustainability into our mainstream offerings, through new and innovative financial products with a positive effect on the environment and society, and by advising clients on their philanthropy. And it is through the management of environmental and social risks, the management of our environmental footprint and our sustainability disclosure that we continue to set standards in the industry.

Our cross divisional organization, UBS in Society, focuses our firm on this direction. UBS in Society is committed to making UBS a force for driving positive change in society and the environment for future generations. It will do so by focusing our firm on creating long-term positive impact for clients, employees, investors and society. Our ambition is to be:

• A leader in sustainable finance across all client segments

• A recognized innovator and thought leader in philanthropy

• An industry leader for sustainable business practices

• An employer of choice
