Asia’s best for discretionary portfolio management 2023: Union Bancaire Privée
Client goals and aspirations have always been unique. So is Union Bancaire Privée’s discretionary portfolio management (DPM) service. But the team did have to contend with big shifts in clients’ risk profiles in the past year, and their eagerness to be involved in all strategic investment decisions at a time of global volatility.
