UBS Is Closing Down Debt Restructuring Unit, N.Y. Post Says

UBS AG is closing its profitable debt restructuring unit, integrating it into a unit that offers high-interest loans, the New York Post reported, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter.

A spokeswoman told the newspaper the Swiss bank isn’t “exiting the restructuring business.”

However, the Post said UBS has been telling clients that the business will be “de-emphasized,” according to its informants.

The unit has added as much as $80 million to UBS’s profit at little cost, the newspaper cited a person familiar with its workings as saying.
