Share Performance Historical Comparison

The Swiss Life share price developed strongly in 2017, closing the year at CHF 345.00. This amounts to an appreciation of 20%, or 24% taking into account the dividend distribution of CHF 11.00.

The international stock markets were positively influenced by a synchronous global economic upswing. In the US, the Federal Reserve raised its key interest rate three times in 2017. Despite monetary policy normalisation, the US economy continued to expand and created a robust number of new jobs, while the unemployment rate remained low. Economic growth was also reflected in the development of the US stock markets. European stock markets also developed strongly, albeit not to the same extent as in the US. The reason for a somewhat weaker performance is related to the continuing uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the ongoing political challenges in Germany. The European markets were well prepared for the Federal Reserve’s measures and for the European Central Bank measure to keep its benchmark interest rate unchanged. In this environment, the Swiss Life share price developed very well: with an increase of 20% through 2017, the share outperformed the Swiss Market Index (+14%) and the European Dow Jones STOXX 600 insurance index (+7%). At the Annual General Meeting in April 2017, shareholders approved a withholding tax-free distribution from the capital contribution reserve of CHF 11.00 per share.
