At the start of the second quarter of 2015, many of the underlying macroeconomic challenges and geopolitical issues that we have previously highlighted remain and are unlikely to be resolved in the foreseeable future. We are implementing initiatives to improve the pricing of some Wealth Management accounts in light of the interest rate environment in Switzerland and parts of Europe. Excluding potential outflows associated with these initiatives, we expect our wealth management businesses will continue to deliver positive net new money in the second quarter. Thus, despite ongoing and new challenges, we continue to be committed to the disciplined execution of our strategy in order to ensure the firm’s long-term success and to deliver sustainable returns for our shareholders.
