The international stock markets were influenced by an uncertain global environment, especially in the first months of 2016. For example, the EU referendum in the UK led to a renewed strengthening of the Swiss franc against major currencies. The US election in November stopped this tendency and resulted in a marked appreciation of the US dollar versus all other major currencies, as well as a rally of all regional equity markets including the Swiss Market Index. This rally did not compensate, however, for the losses observed in the first months of 2016. On the monetary policy front, although the Federal Reserve raised its benchmark interest rate in December, markets were well prepared for this measure. In such an environment, Swiss Life’s share price performed strongly: with an increase of 6% through 2016, the shares outperformed both the Swiss Market Index (–7%) and the Dow Jones STOXX 600 European insurance index (–6%). At the Annual General Meeting in April 2016, shareholders approved a withholding tax-free distribution from the capital contribution reserve of CHF 8.50 per share.
