UBSWhat happens when a Swiss Bank opens on Main Street USA?
The world of financial services is a constant churn of mergers and acquisitions. The merger of Swiss giant, UBS Warburg and the American brokerage, Paine Webber could have been just one more. Unless we could make it mean something very special to that ultimate consumer, the high net worth individual.
