What we do

Rather than predicting the future, the role of a think tank is to find opportunities and innovative views on how an enterprise should do business in the coming years and decades. In order to come up with relevant and innovative ideas we need to imagine future scenarios which in turn lead us to possible alternative futures. The key to do so lies in understanding the needs of society in the 21st century as a whole and take in a global perspective. Only by having a broad overview of what the future could look like we are able to create a vision for the bank. Additionally UBS Y has the role of a facilitator or consultant for problem solving or ideation workshops within UBS. The main task is the creative disruption in the sense of different thinking.
We have created a Blueprint of the Futures, an exploration of various developments, shifts and breakthroughs that will transform our society and industry in the coming decades. You can find it here.
