On January 15, 2015, the SEC instituted settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings against UBS Securities LLC.

UBS ATS is a private execution venue that accepts, matches, and executes orders to buy and sell securities that it receives from UBS clients and UBS ATS subscribers. Those clients and subscribers include many of the world's largest asset managers, broker-dealers, and institutional investors, who may place trades on behalf of all kinds of investors, including pension funds and individuals with retail brokerage accounts. Between May 2008 and August 2012, UBS ATS was among the largest ATSs. As measured by dollar volume, it was the nation's largest equity ATS during the second quarter of 2014, having executed over $416 billion in equity securities transactions in that period. During the same quarter, UBS executed trades for nearly 10.7 billion shares on UBS ATS.
