UBS chief: We've had offers, but U.S. wealth business is not for sale
September 30, 2009
 
Despite recent speculation that UBS's wealth management business in the Americas is on the block, the Zurich-based bank's CEO today told the firm's financial advisers here today that the business is not for sale, according to a report from Dow Jones.

In a memo that Dow Jones references, UBS's chief executive officer Oswald Gruebel acknowledged that the company has had offers for the wealth management unit, but stated that “we have not taken any of them seriously,” according to the report, and added that the business is “not for sale.”

The memo was sent to address speculation in recent report that the unit was considered "non-core" and could be sold, according to the report.


Sounds vaguely familiar.  Famous last words?



AG Edwards -> Wachovia Securities
Smith Barney -> Morgan Stanley
Merrill Lynch -> Bank of America
McDonald Investments -> UBS
Piper Jaffray -> UBS
Prudential Securities -> Wachovia Securities
 
(To name just a few.)

Who cares. What have the Swiss ever done anyway, besides bowing out of wars, help wealthy people evade taxes, and make a sh*tty tasting cheese?
