In the statement, Axel Weber (the chairman of the UBS) said that UBS would not offer trading in cryptocurrencies for its customers.
“[cryptocurrencies] are often not transparent and, therefore, open to being abused,”
For the chairmen, cryptocurrencies are at best highly speculative investment vehicles and at worst a way to support money laundering and terrorism support.
