'Reflecting on 2022, I’m proud of what we achieved amid tumultuous developments affecting our clients, staff and society as a whole. The war in Ukraine, the aftermath of the pandemic, the energy crisis in Europe, inflation and unfavourable market conditions are all leaving their mark.
It was my first full year as Chair of the Management Board and I’m extremely grateful for the energy and grit I feel in the company, as well as for the trust that private and institutional clients continue to place in us.'
In a tumultuous year on the financial markets, our clients continued to entrust us with their money, resulting in another year of very good net inflows in assets under management.

Our business is impacted by external factors, such as the economy, society and environment in which we operate, and our strategy needs to reflect and respond to that.
In light of our purpose – to preserve and create wealth in a sustainable way – we have defined our wealth management strategy.
