UBS Financial Services
Founded in 1872, UBS Financial Services is one of the largest financial services firms in the world. In the early 2000s, UBS acquired brokerage firm PaineWebber in an effort to increase its presence in the United States. At the time of the acquisition, PaineWebber was the fourth-largest private client brokerage firm in the U.S. After operating under the name UBS PaineWebber for a period of time, the former PaineWebber became UBS Financial Services. UBS offers banking services, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, insurance, estate planning, and alternative investments such as hedge funds. The company is headquartered in Switzerland and has approximately 7,000 financial advisors or stockbrokers in the U.S. alone. It has more than $700 billion of assets under management.FINRA Arbitration Lawyer for UBS Financial Services Investors Nationwide
