The Corporate Center bundles central functions within the LLB Group. In 2013, it played a major role in the realisation of the Focus2015 strategy. With its consistent focus on client requirements and concentration on convincing quality, the organisational unit made an important contribution to the Group’s value added and to a reduction in complexity and costs. Thanks to the great efficiency and effectiveness of all functional areas, the closure of LLB (Switzerland) Ltd. and the sale of the Lugano bank branch as well as Jura Trust AG went smoothly. Moreover, the Group IT Division not only mastered the major challenge of transferring client data, it also assisted in the development of the Zurich-Erlenbach business location, from which – in addition to Vienna and Geneva– the strategically important markets of Central and Eastern Europe are serviced.
