It's an Associated Director position at UBS AM. Applied in December, Interviewed last week, 2.5 hours with three people one by one (Head, line manager, colleague). More like a Middle office role. No luck.

I don't see any opening related to Asian market at UBS AM right now. But I do see offering at UBS WM required an Asian language speaking, but it's a "Client Advisor APAC" role, not FO, so I don't apply.
I loved your reply about the stable job, helping us former generations so nicely to understand the different approach to risk that younger generations have. Kudos to you.

Question:
What makes in your view an asset manager role a more appealing step, career wise, than a wealth manager role? Aren t they both front office roles, at least with respect to the customer contact? I still fail to see what is the career path you are chasing.
