Investment-related expense was slightly lower than last quarter but this is expected to increase in the coming quarters, in line with earlier guidance. Overall, positive jaws remain...

Sustainable bank bonds/From gender equality to SME financing

The sustainable and social bank senior bond market remains limited in size but shows signs of growth. While issuance volumes remain substantially smaller than those of green bonds, altogether eight sustainable or social bank bonds were issued in 2018, up from five in 2017. We expect the market to continue complementing the green bond market in 2019. A large part of the sustainable bonds are geared towards social assets complemented by green assets, in addition to which four banks have issued pure social bonds. The most common categories for allocating proceeds within our bond universe are acce...

Item 3: Approve the Remuneration Policy There are serious ongoing concerns with the policy.  First, the company's use of a fixed share award appears to have been implemented in order to circumvent the bonus cap imposed upon the banking industry as introduced in 2014 by the CRD IV directive and serves to substantially increase fixed pay.  Additionally, the company sets and discloses bonus targets retroactively, which means that the bonus does not serve to incentivize performance.   Item 7: Approve political donations.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 675,68 p prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 596,50 p, puis 567,81 p. Le franchissement de 675,68 p remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.
