    Passionate about well-being. Purposeful about wealth management. Principled about sustainability. Throughout his 27 years of wealth management, Matthew Tashjian has focused on well-being—for his clients, himself, his family, and the planet. His experience resulted in a practicum, Wealth and Well-Being, which he taught at both Merrill and Smith Barney, prior to joining UBS. 

    Matthew’s interests are broad—but, his favorites are spending time with his family, Nicole and their dogs on their 34-acre farm in Woodstock Vermont. There, they like to garden, hike, and do yoga. The people, not the dogs.--

                              Can I invest sustainably across my portfolio?

                              Consider prioritizing SI portfolio alignment

                              The sustainability transition is not just driven by policy, as investors and corporations alike are integrating SI into their portfolios and businesses. At UBS, we view a widening breadth of SI vehicles as an opportunity to deepen exposure.
