n THE TRADE HOT 100
Rising Stars – Introduction
The challenges of global investing are increasingly complex as technology and regulatory initiatives continue to transform the markets and our industry.
At this time of rapid change, UBS is proud to support the Rising Stars,
recognizing individuals who have shown the passion for excellence and
innovation needed to take on these challenges.
Though technology understandably gets much attention as a driver of change,
the commitment and vision of people remain the critical elements of success in
our industry. We depend on people to navigate today's marketplace, a landscape
with perhaps more opportunity and risks than we have seen in the past.
Success will require sound judgment and strong values as much as
knowledge and keen insights. For our industry to continue its rapid pace of
development, its emerging leaders will need relentless energy, a refusal to settle
for second best, and a willingness to move beyond their comfort zone.
At UBS, our values around integrity, collaboration and challenge are at
the forefront of our approach to business, our work with our clients – and
how we engage with the marketplace as a whole. They are at the core of our
activities – from trading and technology to compliance and infrastructure. Our
commitment to these values and their importance to our industry's future are
at the heart of our support for the Rising Stars.
Particularly striking is the diversity of roles and breadth of experience and
background found in this group of Rising Stars. Their areas of expertise cover
trading, portfolio management, risk management, technology, market structure
and regulation. They hail from global asset managers, banks, insurers and
specialized firms. Their involvement in trading cuts across equities, fixed-income,
derivatives and other asset classes. Each is directly engaged with issues of
critical importance to their firm and to the wider industry.
As a group, the Rising Stars are a reminder of the broad range of expertise
our industry draws on to deliver quality execution and manage risks across the
array of markets and asset categories in an increasingly complex global trading
environment. As an industry, we are fortunate to have such an impressive pool
of talent as we confront the challenges ahead.
UBS joins the rest of the industry in congratulating the Rising Stars on their
past success and looks forward to their future achievements.
