When markets slumped in March as the spread of coronavirus gathered pace, wealth managers' trading volumes soared as ultra rich clients reshuffled their portfolios. It was this market frenzy that helped Swiss banks UBS and Credit Suisse – the world's biggest wealth managers – post bumper first-quarter profits while much of the global banking sector was scrambling to make provisions to withstand the economic fallout from the pandemic. While banks that are more focused on commercial lending set aside billions in provisions, the big wealth managers have found that banking for billionaires has swelled their own coffers with outsized transaction fees even as the global economy takes a battering from the coronavirus crisis.

UBS Group on Monday launched floating-rate mortgage loans tied to the new Swiss money market reference rate SARON, phasing out loans linked to the standard LIBOR rate that is being abandoned next year after manipulation scandals.

It is no longer offering Swiss mortgages based on the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR).
(Bloomberg) -- UBS Group AG is offering some of its wealthiest clients in Switzerland a temporary break from negative interest rates in a bid to attract assets as the coronavirus crisis wreaks havoc on markets.The world’s largest wealth manager is offering a payment holiday of several months to clients that plan to eventually invest some of their cash holdings, according to people familiar with the matter who asked for anonymity to discuss internal information.A spokesman for UBS declined to comment.UBS last year led the way in passing on negative rates to rich clients, but the policy has led to outflows -- $16 billion were pulled in the first quarter to avoid charges -- and is making it harder to attract new money in the current crisis. While investors typically prefer the stability of the Swiss franc in times of turmoil, many are holding more cash and don’t want to be forced to make investment decisions as long as the volatility persists.In addition, the pandemic is reshaping how banks look at deposits, given the surge in demand for credit from companies hit by widescale lockdowns to combat the virus. Credit Suisse Group AG turned to its own ultra-high-net-worth clients to bolster its ability to lend as markets sank in March and companies started drawing down credit lines to weather the coronavirus pandemic, Bloomberg has reported.UBS is discussing the payment holiday on a case-by-case basis, the people said, and the bank plans to recoup lost interest by boosting lending. Swiss lenders have gotten some relief from negative interest rates recently when the country’s central bank increased the amount they can deposit there without being charged.Despite outflows from clients seeking to avoid negative interest rates in Europe, UBS still posted a net $12 billion of inflows across its global wealth management unit in the first quarter.Spreading the PainWhile UBS is offering some flexibility to its richest clients in Switzerland, it has continued a push to pass on the cost of negative rates to a broader client base. Last month it started charging clients in Germany for deposits of as little as 500,000 euros. The threshold was previously at 1 million euros.Credit Suisse is also considering sharing that burden with a broader group of clients over the course of this year, according one person familiar with the matter. It currently charges negative interest rates on deposits above 2 million francs and 1 million euros. A spokesman for the bank said there are no changes at this point but Credit Suisse was closely monitoring market developments.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Sergio Ermotti is under no illusion. The chief executive officer of UBS Group AG said on Tuesday that the range of possible economic outcomes from the coronavirus crisis is too wide for any meaningful judgment about the future. Yet managing money for the wealthy may well be a winning strategy for bankers during the worst slump in decades. The Swiss bank is doing pretty well out of it, reporting a big jump in first-quarter profit.Just as the lockdowns are hurting some parts of the economy more than others, Europe’s largest lenders will struggle to varying degrees. Most are grappling with mounting loan losses and some pressure on revenue. Things will get tougher for everyone.UBS, the world’s leading wealth manager, might be in a less worrying place than some of its peers, however. Profit in the first three months of 2020 jumped 40% to $1.6 billion as rich individuals and institutional investors increased their trading with the firm.What’s more, the bank set aside just $268 million for loans that may go bad. That’s much smaller than the provisions made by other large banks, but it reflects the modest size of the UBS loan book, made up largely of mortgages (sold to Swiss clients for the most part). Loans to its wealthy clients, which are mostly backed by securities, saw some margin calls in the quarter but losses were contained. Ermotti’s pivot to the rich looks shrewd.Even if things don’t improve, UBS should cope. Losses on loans to oil companies would rise by $250 million if West Texas Intermediate crude prices stayed at $10. More generally, under the bank’s current model of economic stress, UBS would have another $470 million of charges if it assumed losses on healthy loans too. That’s manageable.While trading activity is slowing and fee income will probably decline as clients sit on more cash, Ermotti didn’t cut UBS’s targets. In the first quarter, profitability as measured by return on common equity Tier-1 capital reached 17.7%. The bank aims for between 12% and 15%.Elsewhere, the situation looks more bleak. Spain’s Banco Santander SA is setting aside 3.9 billion euros ($4.2 billion) for loan losses, cutting its profit by 82% in the quarter. Its diversification across 10 core markets from Brazil to Poland isn’t much of a shield in a global pandemic.The Spanish bank’s exposure to small- and medium-sized businesses, and to consumer finance, isn’t helping. Loan-loss provisions have soared while business has nosedived. New consumer lending in Italy and Spain fell to between 10% and 20% of its usual level once the lockdowns kicked in.Santander’s underlying return on tangible equity dropped to 11.1% in the quarter, well below its medium-term target of between 13% and 15%. Chairman Ana Botin had seemed confident that her bank could weather the crisis with a 5% decline in earnings in a V-shaped economic recovery; on Tuesday she said the bank would need to review its strategic targets.Credit losses are also piling up at HSBC Holdings Plc, an Asia-focused European lender, which is taking its biggest charge for bad debt in almost nine years. Provisions of $3 billion in the first quarter led to a 51% slump in adjusted profit. HSBC set its range of potential credit losses for the year at between $7 billion and $11 billion. “Part science, part art,” is how HSBC’s chief financial officer described his effort to gauge likely credit losses.The banks’ second-quarter earnings will provide a clearer picture of the winners and losers, and yet more lending support from regulators could soften the blows. But UBS’s expensive decision after the financial crisis to move away from capital-intensive lending and trading is paying off.This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Elisa Martinuzzi is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering finance.
