One month on from opening a new branch in Shanghai, Asia’s largest wealth manager UBS, has now increased its Hong Kong capacity with a second office.  

The new office located in Kowloon is expected to house a 100-strong team by year-end. It will be UBS's first office based outside Hong Kong's Central Business District. The firm recently leased a further floor of the new premises, which will have a total gross floor area of 36,000 square feet. Around 30 international contemporary art pieces selected from the UBS Art Collection, will also be on display at the new premises. 

«The Kowloon office will be a platform from which we can better serve the domestic market particularly the first and second-generation entrepreneurs who have always been a key client segment for us,» said Edmund Koh, Head of Wealth Management, Asia Pacific.
