Over the past 50 years, we have seen the rise of Singapore as a wealth management hub and today, it remains the region’s sweet growth spot.

For us at UBS, we see Singapore as Asia’s window to the world of global opportunities where we connect people and ideas to reimagine the power of investing. It is our priority to stay committed in partnering with Singapore to emerge stronger than before as a financial center by grooming a future-ready workforce that is client-focused, more agile and more digital.
