UBP Barcelona

UBP’s Barcelona office, which operates under the name UBP Gestión Institucional S.A., is located at the heart of Barcelona’s business district. It was founded in 2001 and has been authorised by the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores to act as Tied Agent of Union Bancaire Privée (Europe) S.A. It employs three members of staff.


The Barcelona office is dedicated to the promotion of UBP’s services and products in the asset management field. To that end, we have relationships with fund distributors, fund-of-fund managers, pension funds, insurance companies and family offices. We promote investment solutions and put prospective clients into contact with relationship managers who give access to investment information and fund managers. Our team also advises on and builds specific mandates based on our different fund managers’ particular expertise.

Unique selling point

The successful growth of UBP Barcelona can be attributed to our proximity to our clients, both in terms of location and of communication. Our work is transparent and clients are provided with regular information. They also receive frequent visits from our staff. Our activities are supported by UBP Group, which ensures timely and accurate reporting.
