Working in tech at UBS


I am looking at potentially working as a technologist at UBS. At UBS, over 50% of the revenue comes from wealth management, which I beleive is halal although correct me if I am wrong.

My question is, would it be permissible to work in technology at UBS.

Jazakallah khair,

Assalaamu alaykum,

As long as your role is not directly involved in any non Sharia Compliant activity, and is more generic in nature, then according to some scholars, your role would be acceptable.

However, one should aim to work in a firm which is ethical and compliant with Sharia values overall. It’s always better to and encouraged to be involved in wealth management firms which align with Sharia principles.

Allah knows best
