Our new podcast Up to Speed with UBS delivers smart 10-minute business briefings on the ideas and trends shaping Asia’s future

When we were thinking about creating a new podcast series, we asked, "What do you want next?" You said, “My time is valuable. I need short episodes that can get me briefed on need-to-know, industry-critical business topics in less than 10 minutes.”

We got to work identifying the most exciting trending business topics in Asia and invited leading experts and industry insiders to share their knowledge in a digestible, entertaining style. Industry-led insights that you won’t find in any MBA.

Enter our new podcast, Up to Speed with UBS, launching on March 29, Tuesday.

The first season will explore everything from why seafood is the hottest alternative protein to invest in, to where to buy land in the metaverse and what it takes to build a fintech unicorn.

The one thing we’ve learned? Short-form audio is a challenge when you have so much to share, but we’re confident we’ve packed a lot of value into a full-length episode of just 600 seconds. That’s a long shower, walk around the block or quick lunch-break listen. 

Our promise? Give us 10 minutes and we’ll make you 10 minutes smarter.

If you’re an investor, entrepreneur or executive looking to get the TL;DR ("too long; didn't read") on trending business topics in Asia, this podcast is for you.
