The Zürcher Kantonalbank has to be the second-best financial year in its 150-year history. It recorded a net profit of about 900 million francs, of which the Bank 500 million to the Canton and the municipalities, distributes. The managed clients, increased assets by 38 to about 330 billion Swiss francs. For this great result it gave on Monday in a member of the Parliament from all factions of thanks and hymns of praise.

Still, the green liberals requested, the annual report and the annual refuse bill. For GLP, the dividend payout this year is “not wise”, as Daniel Hodel said. A second Corona-wave is expected to bring in huge loan losses and mass unemployment, with unpredictable consequences. He also criticized that the ZKB in the year requested with the record dividend is also an increase in the capital Endowment: “it’s all about,” said Hodel.

Similarly, Hanspeter Amrein (SVP) commented. For him but not for his party – does not correspond to the quantitative development of the mandate from the Parliament. The growth of the Bank, in particular in the mortgage business, a Shoe too big for the Canton. “This is an unacceptable concentration of risk,” said Amrein.

President of the Bank Council defends

This criticism has been rejected by the other speakers. Also, the SVP praised the strong capitalisation of the Bank, the sun far above the minimum requirements. For the FDP, the application of the GLP goes too far, for the AL, he is “ideologically” for the SP even “reprehensible”.

the President of the ZKB Bank Council, Jörg Müller-Ganz (FDP) fought back. He pointed to a stress test have passed, the Bank recently. A price decline of 38 percent to 48 percent was in the real estate accepted. The ZKB have passed the Test very well. The equity ratio would decline under such a scenario, only from 20 to 18 percent. The application of the GLP was finally rejected by 143:24 votes in favour and one abstention.

Inadequate for the promotion of women

The SP criticized the Bank for any other reason. You’ve done in the last few years to create social change, especially in the case of the reconciliation of work and family and promotion of women. Still Directorate General and the Bank Council all-male bodies were. This criticism was also attached by the AL. The women’s network of the Bank is not sufficient by far, as Markus Bischoff said. He expected that the Disposals will be replaced in the Directorate-General by women.

In this point, Müller acknowledged-the Whole of the need for action. You will give the promotion of women in the future a higher priority. The emerging issues from the business lines would be replaced “if possible with women”.
