fhnw.leadUBS is one of the biggest wealth manager in the world. Nevertheless the bank experienced some serious issues during the financial crisis. The thesis provides an overview over UBS corporation and highlights several aspects of the financial crisis, which all had an effect on UBS and its performance.
fhnw.initialPositionThe case study of UBS is divided into three main parts. The first part focuses on the history of UBS and the building of the financial powerhouse. The second part highlights one firm strategies in general and how it was applied towards UBS. The third and main part focuses on UBS performance prior and after the financial crisis. The main goal of the Bachelor Thesis is to show the effects of the financial crisis especially on the performance of UBS and the effects on the national economy of Switzerland.
fhnw.procedureThe case study mostly relies on external sources such as books written about UBS in the context of the financial crisis, financial news about UBS and other finance topics and official UBS reports. A personal interview between the author and a UBS director employee can be found in the appendix. In order to get an overview the author was reading two books concerning UBS and the financial crisis. The books were all available at the library of the University of Basel.
fhnw.resultsThe weaknesses of UBS during the financial crisis were the misinterpreting and underestimation of risks, the careless trust in credit rating agencies in the context of the securitization process of subprime mortgage securities and wrong strategies such as wanting to become number one Investment bank at Wall Street. This led to the introduction of an internal hedge fund called Dillon Read Capital Management, which exposed the bank to hardly understandable risks mainly in the asset backed securities and collateralized debt obligation markets.
