Career
Career progression
Zeltner joined the Corporate Client division of the Swiss Bank Corporation (SBC) in 1987. Between 1987 and 1998, Zeltner occupied numerous roles at Swiss Bank Corporation (SBC) within the Private and Corporate Client division in Bern, New York City, and Zurich: Amongst other roles, Zeltner was Credit Risk Officer for Corporate and Institutional clients.
Following the merger of SBC with the Union Bank of Switzerland (SBG/UBS) to become UBS in 1998, Zeltner was appointed as head of Portfolio Management for Risk Transformation and Capital Management.
From 2005 to 2007 he occupied the position of CEO at UBS Deutschland, Frankfurt. In November 2007, he was appointed as Head of Wealth Management North, East & Central Europe. From February 2009 to January 2012 he was co-CEO of Wealth Management and Swiss Bank.
He was the President of UBS Wealth Management from November 2014 to December 2017 with more than 2 Trillion Assets under Management globally.
On 14 December 2017, UBS announced that Zeltner will step down from GEB at the end of the year. He has retired from the firm as of 2018. The Board of Directors has appointed Martin Blessing, former President of Human Resources & Corporate Banking and President of UBS Switzerland, to succeed him as President Wealth Management.

Business strategy
On 17 November 2011, UBS held their annual Investor Day in New York. Jürg Zeltner gave a presentation on the UBS Wealth Management Division in which he outlined how the business is positioned in the financial markets and in view of future growth. He pointed out that UBS's strategy is centered around its wealth management business.
In February 2015, Jürg Zeltner was awarded second position among the ten best global private banking CEOs of 2015 and he revealed the strategies behind the Wealth Management division. According to him, there has been a shift from asset gathering and product manufacturing to clients advisory and, with the markets moving so rapidly, portfolio diversification. According to Zeltner the focus of wealth management must be on advising clients on how to position their portfolio and on carrying research on asset allocation and on investment management. With regard to the move of the Swiss National Bank to unpeg the Swiss franc from the euro, he affirmed that "the sharp fall in the Swiss equity markets and the currency turmoil highlight the importance of portfolio diversification. Anyone who follows this principle and holds securities in all the world's major markets, hedging their currency risks, is financially better equipped to cope with this decision, giving UBS the opportunity to demonstrate to clients why they need us." In 2016, his work to improve private banking is appreciated even by his competitor.
