UBS Switzerland AG has partnered with global B2B match-making platform Opportunity Network, to allow select high net worth and ultra high net worth clients to connect with each other and other counterparts around the world.
Via the platform, clients can raise and invest capital, executive buy and sell side M&A, find real estate opportunities and help businesses they own expand globally. Currently, Opportunity Network connects circa 14,500 chief executives, business owners and private investors across 100 countries. It hosts an overall deal flow of more than $90 billion.
Executive director at UBS, James Fisher, said of the partnership: “The platform will serve or provide a digital forum for wealth management clients interested in exploring global business opportunities.”
Founder and chief executive of Opportunity Network, Brian Pallas, added: “The launch of our partnership with UBS represents a major inflection point for Opportunity Network.
“I am confident that the quality of its users and the professional expertise of UBS will not only substantially expand the member base, but also create unique business opportunities that will attract the interest of partners from all over the world.”
Opportunity Network members post or directly connect to actionable business and investment opportunities ranging from early stage funding to M&A, commercial partnerships and JVs. All members are screened by financial institutions, professional services firms and worldwide associations.
