Switzerland's largest family-controlled private bank saw first half profits increase by 80 per cent to SFr249.4 million ($145 million).
A statement from the bank said the strong performance was mainly attributable to revenue from services, which accounted for three-quarters of operating income.
Assets under management were reported at SFr146 billion at the end of the first half, a gain of 14 per cent from the end of 1999.
The bank said it was continuing a share repurchase plan to buy back and nullify shares with a market value of up to SFr100 million by the end of March 2001.
