THE APPROACH

Due to the nature of the project, a new design system was created based upon and modified from the original UBS style guide. Alignment meetings with Switzerland head office become an integral part of the process to get new or modified components approved and over the line.

THE SOLUTION

Initial design iterations and explorations

Using charts and bar graphs, the inital designs focused graphical representations of the clients wealth. Whilst working collaboratively with the product owners this evolved into something totally different. The UX became conversational with relevant information being surfaced up to its users in a contextual manner. Prompting users to engage with its features. It became more personalized and educational for the user.

Iterations

What is total wealth?

The digital experience evolved from a transactional app to a compelling and engaging digital conversation. A cube was created to embody the idea that client held different aspects of wealth, each side represented the following:

Mindsets and interests: Questions on their perspectives (How clients view wealth and their interests)
Relationships: Important people in your life
Milestones: Life timeline
Planning and advice: How UBS helps clients reach their goals
Cashflow: Client’s income and spending
Net Worth: Client’s assets and liabilities

The features enabled clients to share different aspects of their financial life with UBS and the advisors, while using engaging and intuitive tools to define their goals in the short-term and long-term.
