Tracing its roots back as far as 1747, UBS is a leading financial firm and one of the world’s largest managers of private wealth assets. UBS provides a range of services to institutional investors, intermediaries, banks, insurance companies, corporations, sovereign governments, supranational organizations and private investors. Things did not look good for UBS in early 2008, when the firm reported write downs in the billions of dollars. In October 2008, the Swiss government gave UBS $5.35 billion in capital, taking a 9 percent stake in the bank. Things started looking up in 2009, when the Swiss government sold their stake in the company at a large profit. The 2010 fiscal reports continue to be encouraging as UBS strengthens.
