Share Performance Historical Comparison

The Swiss Life share price developed strongly in 2018, closing the year at CHF 378.60. This is an increase of 10%, or 14% taking into account the dividend payment of CHF 13.50 in April 2018.

The international stock markets were negatively influenced by this year’s trade conflict between the US and China and continued monetary policy normalization. Additionally the political debate on the Brexit also caused uncertainty on the markets. US stock prices fell during the final quarter 2018 and closed 2018 down, like other major stock indices in developed economies. Also the Swiss Market Index (SMI) was unable to escape the global trends and closed the year minus 10%. Swiss Life’s share price in this setting developed very nicely; with a plus of 10% until end of 2018, the share outperformed the SMI and the European Down Jones Stoxx 600 insurance index (–10%) considerably. At the Annual General Meeting in April 2018, shareholders approved a withholding tax-free distribution from the capital contribution reserve of CHF 13.50 per share.
