External dividends to shareholders
Distribution to shareholders since 2013,
in USD billions
Based on the Group’s solid economic earnings, the Board of Directors proposes a regular dividend of CHF 5.90 per share for the 2019 financial year, up from CHF 5.60 in 2018.
Consistent with the established capital management priorities, the Board of Directors proposes a further public share buyback programme of up to CHF 1.0 billion purchase value. In light of the recent volatility in the financial markets, the Board will evaluate the appropriateness of launching the share buyback programme in the second half of 2020.
