In addition the bank is providing its clients with a set of advisory services and research. The investment bank of UBS is an active participant in capital markets flow activities and is operating one of the leading foreign exchange prime broker businesses.
Last January, UBS was one of the first major banks to announce that it did not suffer any losses as a result of the removal of the Swiss franc exchange rate cap relative to the euro. Switzerland’s largest bank came prepared for the turmoil that has substantially reshaped the foreign exchange prime broker business throughout the last couple of quarters.
