“The separation of Julius Baer Group gives GAM Holding Ltd increased strategic flexibility to achieve the full potential of our business, whilst allowing us to continue to benefit from our relationship with Julius Baer private bank,” Johannes de Gier, chairman of GAM, said.
Julius Baer investors received one share each of the two new companies.
