Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- UBS AG, Switzerland’s biggest bank, is opening a wealth management office in Israel to allow locals and foreigners access to domestic and international investment management under one roof.

“UBS is acting on a vision of becoming one of Israel’s most prominent wealth management investment houses,” Kobi Faigenbaum, chief executive officer of UBS Wealth Management Israel, said at a press conference in Tel Aviv today.

The Swiss bank has about 70 people working in the country, where it started activities in 1996, it said. UBS was accepted as a member of the stock exchange in 1997.
