AGM Statement

Julius Baer Holding Ltd

Press Release
from Julius Baer Holding Ltd.

          Annual General Meeting of Julius Baer Holding Ltd.

Integration Progressing Ahead of Schedule - International Reinforcement of the
                          Board of Directors

At today's Annual General Meeting of Julius Baer Holding Ltd., shareholders
elected Georges Gagnebin and Charles Stonehill to the Board of Directors for the
first time. Among the existing members, Raymond J. Baer (Chairman), Béatrice
Speiser and Paul Embrechts were reelected for another three-year term of office.
The Annual General Meeting approved a gross dividend of CHF 1.00 per registered

In his address to the shareholders, Chairman Raymond J. Baer placed the topic of
'change' at the heart of his observations. 'In dynamic markets, the willpower to
change and the adaptability of a company are particularly important. The ship
must move faster than the current in which it sails in order to be able to
maneuver,' explained Raymond J. Baer. The founding family's relinquishment of
its voting majority, the introduction of the single-class registered share
structure and, of course, the acquisition of the three private banks and GAM
last year represented momentous changes in the history of the Julius Baer Group.
'This transformation is an investment in the future. It will also enable us to
succeed against the international competition and create added value for our
shareholders,' firmly believes Raymond J. Baer.

Johannes A. de Gier, President of the Group Executive Board and CEO, expressed
his marked satisfaction with the current status of the integration of the three
private banks and GAM: 'The integration has advanced significantly ahead of
schedule. These initial successes as well as the clear financial goals are also
reflected by the valuation of our stock. The Julius Baer Group is moving forward
at a considerable pace and according to plan.' He additionally commented on the
attractive opportunities that are open to Switzerland's largest pure-play wealth
manager. And he noted that the Group fundamentally pursues a dual strategy,
concentrating on the one hand on the traditional markets in Europe and on the
other hand on the growth markets of the world, from Eastern Europe and Latin
America to the Middle East and the Far East.

The resolutions of the Annual General Meeting

--  The annual report, the annual accounts and the consolidated financial
    statements were approved.

--  The shareholders approved die distribution of the disposable profit
    amounting to CHF 400.1 million as follows: total dividends of CHF 111.6

The shareholders approved a gross dividend of CHF 1.00 per registered share,
which will be paid as of 19 April 2006.

--  The Annual General Meeting discharged the members of the Board of Directors.

--  Georges Gagnebin and Charles Stonehill were elected to the Board of
    Directors for the first time. The existing Board members Raymond J. Baer
    (Chairman), Béatrice Speiser and Paul Embrechts were reelected for another
    period of three years. 'Georges Gagnebin's wealth of knowledge in private
    banking will enable us to decisively push forward and implement the
    initiatives in our core business division. And with the broad international
    experience Charles Stonehill has gathered in the financial services sector
    over nearly three decades, he represents a significant reinforcement of our
    Board of Directors,' commented Raymond J. Baer regarding the expansion of
    the supervisory body.

--  The Annual General Meeting elected KPMG Fides Peat, Zurich, as the new
    statutory auditors for a term of one year.
