ZURICH (Reuters) - Swiss bank UBS Group is evaluating options for its asset management unit, including a partial sale or merger of the business, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday, citing unidentified people with knowledge of the matter.

UBS has considered seeking to acquire Deutsche Bank’s DWS Group asset manager, potentially to combine it with its own business and spin off the two as a separate entity, the agency cited the people as saying, adding UBS may still keep the unit unchanged and discussions may not lead to a deal.

UBS and DWS declined to comment on the report.
