UBS Plans To Set Up China Mutual Fund Arm: Reuters

·1 min read
  • Swiss investment banking and financial services provider UBS Group AG (NYSE: UBS) is planning to establish a wholly owned mutual fund business in China, Reuters reported.

  • The bank aims to reach and expand its presence in China’s retail fund market valued at $3.9 trillion.

  • Recruitment for key personnel has already begun, and the unit is expected to be launched in about two years.

  • UBS already owns a private fund business and a mutual fund joint venture in China.

  • The report noted that the move comes amidst tightening competition for a share in China’s mutual fund industry after the country slashed the foreign ownership cap.

  • Price Action: UBS shares are trading higher by 0.87% at $15.02 in premarket on the last check Wednesday.
