Today, the Bank's staff draw their inspiration and drive from the founding family's subtle blend of strong moral values and pragmatism, which to this day remain the key to UBP’s success. The Treasury & Trading (T&T)teams, with 8 booking centers across the globe, are the doorway to the different financial markets for UBP group. The Treasury team actively manages UBP Balance sheet to optimize the net interest income coming from the different Asset & Liabilities flows.

Treasury is also in charge of the overall Cash & Collateral management for the bank. The Trading & Execution teams are the link between the markets and UBP client advisors to ensure them the best possible market access. They facilitate the execution of clients’ trades and provide UBP relationship managers(RM’s) with all the trading information and services they need to implement their clients’ portfolio strategies.
