The WealthBriefing GCC Region Awards showcase best of breed providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities. They were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals deemed by the panel of judges to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2016’.

Walid Shash, UBP’s Head of the Middle East & Africa region says, “These two awards show recognition of UBP’s expertise in the fields of High Yield, Convertible bonds, European and Swiss equities, Unconstrained fixed income strategies and emerging market debt. They acknowledge our strong asset management capabilities and our capacity to offer our private banking clients access to institutional investment solutions. The award for Best Fund Manager also reflects UBP's proactive approach in terms of client service.”

In addition to UBP’s coverage of clients based in the Middle East and Africa out of its headquarters in Geneva, the Bank has significantly expanded its presence in the Dubai International Financial Centre with the acquisition of the operations of Lloyds and Coutts in the region, thus reinforcing the existing team. With a representative office in Dubai and a financial company in Beirut, UBP boasts some 30 professionals covering the region, including relationship managers and investment advisors providing full access to UBP’s range of products and services.

UBP has been the recipient of prominent industry awards in the region. In 2016, the Bank was awarded “Best Private Bank in the MENA region” at the Banker Middle East Industry Awards, and in 2015 UBP received the award for “Best Fund Manager” at the Wealth Briefing (GCC Region) Awards, as well as the award for “Best Managed Advisory Service 2015 (UAE)” from CPI Financial.
