Distribution for the Financial Year 2019

Following a request by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA and underlining Julius Baer’s support for a joint effort by all parties involved in the face of the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis and for the measures approved by the Swiss Federal Council on 25 March 2020, the Board of Directors amended its 2019 dividend proposal by splitting the distribution of CHF 1.50 per ordinary share into two equal distributions of CHF 0.75 per share. The first distribution of CHF 0.75 per share (consisting of a distribution of the “statutory capital reserve” of CHF 0.375 per share1 and a dividend of CHF 0.375 per share2) was made on 25 May 2020. The second distribution of CHF 0.75 per share (consisting of a distribution of the “statutory capital reserve” of CHF 0.375 per share1 and a dividend of CHF 0.375 per share2) was made on 6 November 2020.
