UBS: A failure at the highest level

Sergio Ermotti, the outgoing UBS group chief, earned in the past year, 12.5 million Swiss francs, slightly less than last year, when he 14.1 million Swiss francs once rich. The decline in the UBS with the decline in the return on equity and, in the first instance imposed a record buses, in the control method in France is justified.
