UBS Global Financial Intermediaries in Jersey

Written by: UBS Posted: 03/08/2022

The UBS Global Financial Intermediaries team in Jersey (FIM Jersey) has been providing a dedicated offering to discretionary fund managers/external asset managers, family offices and funds for more than 15 years

the FIM jersey model creates a triangular arrangement between the end-client, the discretionary fund managers (DFMs) or external asset managers (EAMs) and UBS Jersey.

The result is a bespoke client experience where the DFMs/EAMs’ investment strategy and client relationship are supported by a stable and diversified Tier 1 bank.

Our independent team is designed to support DFMs/EAMs with the running of their book and our strategy is focused on helping them grow. We also provide professional trade and custodial facilities to ensure the client experience is at the forefront of every action.  
As part of UBS Wealth Management, our group-wide data is also made available, namely our renowned UBS Chief Investment Office (CIO) research, analysts, funds and alternative investments.

Whether the DFM/EAM is an established asset manager looking to diversify their custodial options, or a newly launched enterprise in need of a platform to launch their business, FIM Jersey is happy to discuss a solution.

Jersey Private Funds 

FIM Jersey has provided banking services to UBS Private Market Funds for more than a decade.

With their continuing popularity, FIM Jersey is now targeting Jersey Private Funds (JPFs) that require custody of traditional bankable assets such as equities, fixed income and funds.

A dedicated offering, including the ability to provide Lombard lending directly to JPFs, is in the pipeline and is due to be rolled out later this year.
