Share price performance

The Swiss Performance Index (SPI) increased by 2.7 percent on the previous year. The price of the LLB share fell by 10.4 percent to CHF 35.85 as at 31 December 2015. The LLB share slightly underperformed the European banking sector: the STOXX Europe 600 Banks Index in CHF ended the year 9.6 percent lower.

The LLB share is currently suffering from the historically low level of interest rates and dampened growth prospects. With the StepUp2020 strategy, the LLB Group is explicitly addressing the topic of growth, while its annual results for 2015 underline its ability to generate good results even in a difficult environment.
