Financial institution UBS Global Asset Management has split off its global real estate operations from its core equity and bond investment business. Until now, the regional real estate business, principally located in the U.S., Switzerland and Great Britain, has largely operated separately from its core investment management business. Cliff Hawkins, managing director of the British real estate team, said the more focused property business would allow UBS to create new products and tackle new markets.
