People living in Switzerland are by far the wealthiest of those in any major economy around the world, and they are getting richer, according to the latest Global Wealth Report from the Credit Suisse Research Institute. "In terms of personal wealth, our estimates show that, on average, the Swiss are eleven times wealthier than the average world citizen. They are approximately twice as wealthy as citizens of the United States, the United Kingdom and France, almost three times as wealthy as Germans and 25 times better off than the average Chinese citizen," says Credit Suisse's report.
The rise in the U.S. interest rates is a major concern for the financial community. The leading topic is structural: return of inflation and a Central Bank far less dovish than before. Furthermore, the Trump election and his proposals to cut taxes and boost spending via tax credits on infrastructure has fuelled strong reactions in the bond market.
The media has credited Trump for the rally in yields and the recent swoon in the equity market. The argument goes that Trump’s policies notably with higher spending, lower taxes and less regulation will be positive for growth and inflation.
When it became clear that Donald Trump would win the US presidential election, markets initially turned very red, ironically the color of the Republican Party. The day after the election in the US, futures were down about 4%, the dollar lost about 2% and the oil price lost about 4%. Gold, in our opinion, was the only winner... Markets don't like uncertainty and while there will certainly be winners and losers over the short term, it is too soon to determine any long-term effect. The price of risk is certainly going up, which we believe explained the majority of the fall.
Zurich Insurance Group said Thursday it aims to boost profit and save about $1.5 billion over the next few years by cutting costs under its recently-installed chief executive Mario Greco. The Zurich-based insurer also said it plans to maintain an annual dividend of 17 Swiss francs ($16.95). The new plan replaces a previous goal to save at least $1 billion by the end of 2018. Zurich Insurance will also target a payout ratio of 75 percent of net income after tax, the firm said in a statement on Thursday.

French authorities said on Thursday they are investigating 560 taxpayers over tax evasion based on information garnered in the leaked Panama Papers. They confirmed a report in Le Monde, one of the papers that broke the Panama Papers story along with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in April. Tax investigators around the world have spent months delving into the 11.5 million confidential documents leaked in April after Panamanian law office Mossack Fonseca’s computers had been hacked.
The macroeconomic headwinds and elevated volatility currently serving as a cornerstone for much of the prevailing investor uncertainty show little sign of receding. The Brexit vote and the ensuing political and economic uncertainty only amplify the uncertainty. With traditional assets failing in their capital preservation and portfolio stability purposes, investors need to look for something else to help offset the risk generated by equities. Demand to generate returns which are not beholden to the direction of asset markets has become more pronounced.
Volkswagen AG is expected to announce a sweeping restructuring of its embattled VW passenger car brand that includes up to 30,000 job cuts over the next five years and a shift toward electric vehicles and new digital mobility businesses, a source told Reuters Friday.
