UBS AG (UBS) Enjoying Robust Growth On Its Wealth Management Division

Switzerland’s biggest bank, UBS AG (NYSE:UBS), reported impressive earnings for the second-quarter, especially in its wealth management division that saw profits rise by 15%, which according to its CFO in an interview on CNBC can be attributed to the stable growth of the U.S economy. The core wealth management business performed well in the quarter aiding the company’s stellar results.

UBS AG (NYSE:UBS)’s CFO, Tom Naratil, could not fail to advise investors to pay a closer watch on the U.S and Canadian equities as some of the places where the company remains favorable as well as the North American energy boom that the company is closely monitoring.

“We look at the U.S economy we fill quite well about the growth that we see. What we are advising our clients to do. U.S equities and Canadian equities are actually where we are quite favorable also the theme of North American energy is one that we are very focused on,” said Mr. Naratil.

UBS AG (NYSE:UBS)’s clients continue to hold excess amount of cash, according to the CFO, attributed to the fact that parts of Europe and other places around the globe are not growing at the same pace as the U.S. economy.
