Graduate Programme - Wealth Management - Affluent Banking


Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) is one of the largest family-owned private banks in the world. But what makes UBP really unique is its corporate culture, which combines modernity and tradition. Although UBP was founded in 1969, its origins can be traced back to the 17th century and the start of a long line of financiers and diplomats of whom Edgar de Picciotto and his descendants are the successors. Today, the Bank's staff draw their inspiration and drive from the founding family's subtle blend of strong moral values and pragmatism, which to this day remain the key to UBP’s success.

As it plays such a major part in our strategy, we are investing significantly in Wealth Management to fuel our growth, particularly in Europe (onshore), the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia. We provide a complete range of private banking products and services, including a variety of investment management and advisory mandates, tailored to our clients's specific requirements, objectives and risk profiles. Among UBP professional partners, over 300 independent asset managers have chosen us as their custodian bank, valuing our personalised, flexible services and our transparent fee structure.


This is a unique 12 months programme, based on a permanent contract, in our Affluent Banking Team offering a recent graduate to acquire targeted professional skills and practical experience in the Wealth Management industry.


This specific programme contains various rotations in different teams in Geneva, all of them in high interaction with Wealth Management and allowing to build an extensive internal network of colleagues and experts.

Your training programme is offered with the option of obtaining a CWMA (Certified Wealth Management Advisor) or CFA certification.
