UBS is considered the world’s largest manager of private wealth assets, with over CHF 2.2 trillion in invested assets,[8] and remains a leading provider of retail banking and commercial banking services in Switzerland. In 2014, UBS’ assets under management (AuM) amounted to US$1,966.9 billion, representing a 15.4% increase in AuM compared to the equivalent data of 2013. It is the biggest bank in Switzerland, operating in more than 50 countries with about 60,000 employees around the world, as of 2014.

In comparison to other European banks, UBS suffered among the largest losses during the subprime mortgage crisis, and the bank was required to raise large amounts of outside capital. In 2007, the bank received a US$9.7 billion capital injection from the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (currently GIC Private Limited effective from July 2013), which remains one of the bank’s largest shareholders.The bank also received capital from the Swiss government, further complemented by a series of equity offerings in 2007, 2008, and 2009.
