RELATED TOPICS​

Global wealth manager UBS Group has become the latest member of the Climate Bonds Initiative Partners Programme.  

UBS will now further develop its data capabilities and market-building efforts within green finance and sustainable fixed income and add diversity and expertise to CBI’s Partners Network.
 
Swiss giant UBS provides a wide range of sustainable investment solutions to both private and institutional investors. This year it became the first bank to offer a 100 per cent sustainable cross-asset portfolio to private clients, including green bonds alongside other debt and equity instruments.
 
As part of its sustainable and impact investing offering, UBS has focused on filling gaps in the sustainable fixed income market. Its new sustainable portfolio offered private clients diversified exposure to development bank debt for the first time within a cross-asset framework, while its new development bank bond indices, in partnership with Solactive, are designed to help institutional investors and others access the asset class.
 
Mark Haefele, Chief Investment Officer, UBS Global Wealth Management, says: “Partnering with the Climate Bonds Initiative is a natural extension of our commitment to sustainable investing. We are excited to be joining market-building initiatives in green bonds and other areas and helping to create a common framework for the sustainable fixed income market.”
 
Manuel Adamini, Director of Investor Engagement, Climate Bonds Initiative, says: “We are delighted to welcome UBS to our Partners Network. UBS Global Wealth Management has been leading the sustainable and impact investment market and contributing to mainstreaming green finance.”
 
“We are looking forward to working together to expand green bond markets globally and reinforcing market best practice and green integrity – areas all closely connected to UBS’ sustainable and impact investing objectives.”
