Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
There is no prohibition on you personally continuing to trade or deal in UBS stocks. There are no fines or penalties, as you are not engaging in insider trading. If you are going to a new employer you would have to disclose your account to the new employer and your portfolio, but you are not prohibited from having your own investments as you see fit.
