At today's Annual General Meeting of Swiss Life Holding Ltd, shareholders approved all resolutions proposed by the Board of Directors, including the total gross dividend distribution of CHF 21.00 per registered share.

The independent voting representative represented 13.675 million of the voting rights in total (42.71% of the share capital).
Shareholders voted with 99.8% in favour of the proposed ordinary dividend of CHF 21.00 gross per registered share for the 2020 financial year. The distribution of the ordinary dividend as approved at the Annual General Meeting will be paid out with value date 29 April 2021.
