Value-oriented corporate management
We focus on client and market requirements while at the same time both taking into account trends in supervisory regulations and aiming to earn attractive returns for our shareholders. We take care to ensure that we remain profitable in the long term. Profit orientation is a central corporate value within the LLB Group. For this purpose, we measure the capital appreciation of our company according to the economic profit model, which encompasses all financial and operative key performance indicators (KPIs).
The LLB Group has set itself three targets with the Focus2015 strategy:
- Our Tier 1 ratio is above 16 percent.
- Our cost-income-ratio is below 60 percent.
- From 2013 to 2015, the LLB Group will attain a cumulative Group net profit of more than CHF 300 million.
The LLB Group made clear decisions about its strategic repositioning and has reached important milestones. In 2014, it was able to further increase cost efficiency while also investing in innovations and sustained success beyond 2015. It aims to further strengthen its operating performance in 2015.
From today’s perspective, we expect that we will probably not be able to reach all the quantitative goals 2013–2015, particularly those regarding the cost-income-ratio and the cumulated Group net profit, even though our strategic repositioning was successful. This is due to current negative market interest rates.
