Your Trusted Swiss Wealth Manager
for Global American Clients
We are a leading Swiss-based, SEC-registered investment advisor with a physical presence in Zurich and Geneva.
Investment Outlook Q1 2022
As we entered 2022, our two recently identified structural trends, energy transition and the re-industrialization of developed countries have been confronted by the grey swan of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, as have markets and economies globally.
Investment Outlook Q4 2021
As we are approaching year end, an increase in aggregate demand from reopening economies and the effect of stimulus plans are accelerating growth and stoking inflation around the world.
We are built to meet the needs of US taxpayers. Our mission is to advise private clients, families and institutions with a US nexus in the complex business of managing their wealth.
What does US nexus mean?
UBP IAS provides investment advice to individuals, trusts, estates, charitable organizations and other entities that are “U.S. Persons,” as defined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. This definition could include U.S. nationals and permanent U.S. residents.
Practical example: Are you relocating?
If you are a non-American moving to USA, as a US taxpayer you will be subject to SEC and IRS regulations. This means that your current assets and portfolios might not be adapted to American rules and this can lead to unnecessary layers of taxes and other costs.
If you are an American moving abroad, as a US taxpayer you will need dual tax reporting (US & local) and you might find difficulties when trying to open an account with local banking institutions.
