Julius Baer successfully raises additional hybrid tier 1 capital

Zurich, 20 May 2014 - After a short book-building process, Julius Baer Group
Ltd. has successfully placed CHF 350 million of subordinated, unsecured debt
with private and institutional investors. The perpetual non-cumulative
Additional Tier 1 Securities carry a coupon of 4.25% and include an optional
redemption call on 5 June 2020 and at any interest payment date thereafter.
The securities will be issued in denominations of CHF 5,000 and multiples
thereof. The additional hybrid tier 1 capital will balance the diminishing
Basel III capital recognition of Julius Baer Group's outstanding old style
capital instruments (preferred securities and lower tier 2 subordinated
unsecured bonds).

An application will be made for provisional admission to trading on the SIX
Swiss Exchange.
