Union Bancaire Privée

Private Bank

This family owned Swiss private bank is making big moves in Asia, and has one of the highest Tier 1 capital ratios in the industry.


Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) was founded in 1969 by Edgar de Picciotto, whose vision from the outset was to offer investors a high-quality and innovative wealth and asset management service. This approach has guided us through the decades and has led us to focus exclusively on the activity we excel at – global wealth management for private clients along with bespoke investment solutions for institutional clients.

In its fifty-year history, not only has the Bank maintained its independence – being fully owned by the de Picciotto family – it has also achieved remarkable growth. Today, UBP stands among the leaders in the field of wealth managament in Switzerland, and ranks among the best-capitalised banks in Europe.

Other Services


This independently owned private bank from Switzerland acquired the Coutts operations in Singapore and Hong Kong in 2015. That momentum is continuing with strong growth in Asia businessreported in 2016 as the firm brings in new bankers and looks to the region as key for the future of the company.

UBP may not yet be a household name in Asia but their intentions are loud and they do most private banking services very well. Building and managing investment portfolios is at the heart of their strengths and in particular our clients cite their alternative investment offering as something notably different to the rest of the competition.

Why UBP?



UBP are growing fast and are now in the top 20 largest private banks in Asia – measured by client assets managed.



They have a strong background in investment management and are leaders in alternative investments such as hedge funds and private equity.



One of just a few ‘pure-play’ private banks, they specialise in servicing private clients and families with no so-called ‘investment banking conflicts’.
