  2. Cross-Asset

Cross-asset solutions provide access to non-traditional strategies, whether they are based on investment themes, liquid & stable returns or hedging.

The UBP Cross-Asset Solutions Team is a dedicated team of specialists, including quantitative analysts, with extensive experience and a proven track record. The team uses a state-of-the-art, in-house quantitative platform which enables them to provide in-depth studies adapted to clients’ specific needs.


Our innovative Cross-Asset solutions focus on the following three pillars:

  • Investment theme-related
    • Opportunities to participate in megatrends (e.g. “Car of Tomorrow”, sector disruptions)
    • Opportunities arising from specific events (e.g. reforms, elections)
  • Liquid, stable return strategies aiming at providing absolute and relative outperformance by using diversification
    • Across different asset classes
    • Through a risk premia-oriented approach
  • Hedging strategies offering portfolio protection against market downturns with a cost-effective approach compared to a static hedge

Investment philosophy & process

Whether dedicated or commingled, each Cross-Asset solution is efficiently constructed by relying on:

  • A highly liquid and scalable investment universe
