Ab out UB S
 
When I first walked in a Swiss Bank (UBS) in Geneva, accompanying my mother I was 7 years old and that was some 30 years ago. It was a great experience of being at a Swiss institution's workplace. My recent experience with the same institute (UBS) left me thinking if it is still a Swiss bank or some kind of subsidiary of Polish institute.

No harm to nobody, I am curious to know if UBS AG is still a Swiss Bank.

New to the internet?

And your original "question" is to me actually to dumb to deserve proper answers.

Define Swiss bank if you will. Since you seem to have your own idea of how this should be defined.

It's more an announcement about somebody's curiosity.

If this is a serious question: the legal structure of UBS is complex.
Below a link to the video of an explanation for dummies (don't mean you particularly, it's just an incredibly dumb video).

Am curious - how did you notice the Polish (huge) bit - this is usually kept well hidden behind the bank counter together with the Indian (huge) bit.

And neither do you. Your English is not good enough.

Thank you very much, the video for dummies is informative and was worth watching.

The UBS HR system is governed by Poles. They control the bank by controlling the entry of worker into UBS.

Let me give you a evidence similar to this... In 2004 I saw huge number of Poles entered into the UK. They were all over the place, it's funny but they were more competitive (cheaper) than that of Asian workforce in the UK labor market, referrals of one to another countryman got them on jobs, later they opened their own recruitment agencies all over the UK, since 2004 till 2014 those agencies helped hundred of thousands of poles into the UK market. Around million Poles have established a little Poland (Polish Market, Polish Church, Polish Schools, Polish everything) in the UK in less than 10 years pushing Uk authorities to start offering public services in polish as well.

That is how I noticed.

And yes, what does that have to do with going into a UBS branch in Switzerland?

Apart from that, I think this is bs, maybe have a check on how many nationalities actually work for UBS in Switzerland

So tell us: Why does a Swede living in Sweden decide to bank with UBS in Geneva? Or is that account inherited from 30years ago?

If you are looking for banks that exclusively hire Swiss nationals will you have a hard time.
