The UBS Pitch Competition is designed to provide students (undergraduate and graduate level) from participating universities in the US an opportunity to use their skills to build innovative solutions to problems faced by the financial industry and government bodies. Problem Statement:

UBS is striving to be at the forefront of ESG and sustainability creating opportunities to better serve our clients. The goal is to invest with a systematic and explicit inclusion of ESG risks with the intention to enhance risk-adjusted returns.
