Marco set up Banking Services and gave it a new strategic alignment. And thanks also to Marco, Switzerland is now home to an excellent, state-of-the-art payment transaction and open banking infrastructure that’s well equipped to deal with future requirements. At the same time, I would like to congratulate Dieter on this step and am pleased that we can continue to rely on his great experience and industry knowledge in the future.
