Private Wealth Management

[PWM] Madrid, Spain

Where do your passions lie? We address every dimension of your life and your goals—investments, business and legacy—to develop a plan that’s truly personalized for you. Then we’ll help you organize your financial life into three strategies: Liquidity—to help provide cash flow for short-term expenses, Longevity—for longer-term needs and Legacy—for needs that go beyond your own.

UBS Wealth Way is an approach incorporating Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy. strategies, that UBS Financial Services Inc. and our Financial Advisors can use to assist clients in exploring and pursuing their wealth management needs and goals over different time frames. This approach is not a promise or guarantee that wealth, or any financial results, can or will be achieved. All investments involve the risk of loss, including the risk of loss of the entire investment.
