UBS Asset Management ("UBS-AM") offers a diverse range of investment capabilities and investment styles designed to meet our clients' needs. We provide equity, fixed income, currency, hedge funds, real estate, infrastructure and private equity investment capabilities that can also be combined into customised solutions and multi-asset strategies.
Sustainable and Impact Investing is a strategic priority for UBS-AM. We believe that using Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) factors, or material non-financial data, in the investment analysis process can improve the quality of investment decisions. Incorporating these factors can enable investors to take a more comprehensive view of the potential upside and downside of their investments. Most investment teams at UBS-AM drive ESG integration within their investment processes. The extent of ESG integration may vary given our diverse range of investment capabilities. Portfolio managers and analysts have access to a variety of external and internal ESG data. They are supported by the Sustainable and Impact Investing team, a global team of 18 sustainability experts dedicated to research and stewardship activities, sustainability reporting, product development, thought leadership sales support, and education. The Sustainable and Impact Investing team collaborates with the investment teams, collaborating with them on best practices in using material non-financial data to inform forward-looking analysis and preparing corporate engagement activities. Accordingly, a comprehensive suite of Sustainable Investing capabilities is available to our diverse client base that includes institutional, insurance, wholesale, individual/high net worth, and other clients. As a recognized innovator and thought leader within the industry, we are committed to making sustainability a part of every client conversation.
