European stock markets are expected to open higher Monday, starting a new week on a positive tone despite the return of Covid-induced restrictions to the continent. At 2 AM ET (0700 GMT), the DAX futures contract in Germany traded 0.3% higher, CAC 40 futures in France climbed 0.4% and the FTSE 100 futures contract in the U.K. rose 0.4%. The major equity indices in Europe have shown strength of late, boosted by strong corporate earnings and helped by the European Central Bank retaining a dovish monetary policy stance.
ZURICH (Reuters) -Julius Baer on Wednesday posted a 23.4% rise in half-year net profit to 606.0 million Swiss francs ($657.9 million), as strong markets and continued client inflows helped the Zurich-based wealth manager grow business. "Following a record-high net profit in the first half of the year, we are entering the second half from a position of strength," Chief Executive Philipp Rickenbacher said in a statement. Wealth and asset managers have continued to benefit from soaring stock markets and continued client activity.
The Swiss bank Julius Baer will pay $79.7 million in a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice after being implicated in a sprawling corruption probe surrounding FIFA, the world's soccer governing body. Julius Baer's three-year deferred prosecution agreement on Thursday resolves a money laundering conspiracy charge, and calls for the Zurich-based bank to pay a $43.3 million criminal fine and forfeit $36.4 million. The Justice Department said the forfeiture represents bribes that marketing executives paid soccer officials in exchange for broadcasting rights to soccer matches including the World Cup, and which a former Julius Baer banker helped launder.
