UBS do not intend to get involved in the politics of the move to Jersey's new international finance centre, and are aware of the controversy surrounding it.
Tom Hill, from the company, expects them to complete the move in around 18 months:
As far as we are aware the planning process has been observed. The appropriate debate has taken place. We don't know the timescale yet, it hasn't been agreed but I would say around 18 months. We don't expect it to take five years.
We have got two offices in St Helier right now. They are old and inconvenient to work in. We need a new place."
Jersey's Treasury Minister says people will get straight answers. But he said details about UBS moving in were "commercially sensitive".
UBS has agreed to lease part of the controversial new development. Earlier this week an appeal against the planning consent was launched.
