  • Outflows from two large clients in Latin America and the United States contributed to a $4.7 billion outflow of net new money last quarter
  • UBS is now targeting an overall return on core capital of 12-15% through 2022 after posting a 12.4% return last year, below a 15% goal. It is targeting a 75-78% cost-income ratio in the same period
  • UBS' finished the year with a 129% rise in net profit for the final quarter of 2019, but that performance benefited from a comparison with the final months of 2018 when a market rout hurt earnings

  • The company said on Monday there was no unintended acceleration in its vehicles, as it responded to a petition to a U.S. safety regulator to investigate and recall around 500,000 of the company's electric cars over the alleged defect
