What made you choose the company you work for?

After studying the International Finance degree, which focused predominantly on investments, I wanted to put my knowledge into practice. UBS is the world’s largest wealth manager and the perfect place to develop my career.

What do you do on an average day?

I work with the UBS Client Advisors to ensure our clients receive the very best service. My days are always varied, from liaising with clients, to analysing the ever-changing financial markets, to even organising the UBS Football team. UBS allows me to adapt and innovate in an ever-changing environment

UBS has had a continuous presence in Jersey since 1979 and now delivers a complete wealth management service to private clients and trustees.

This local, bespoke service is backed by the global network of resources and know-how of one of the world’s leading financial institutions. UBS also offers non-advisory business for Trusts, Funds and External Asset Managers via its Financial Intermediaries team.
