- Says that interventions mainly occurred during periods of uncertainty when the CHF was particularly sought after
- Says renewed upward pressure on the CHF cannot be ruled out

- Net profit of CHF 69.3 bn (+CHF 21.7 bn from 2016)
SNB head Thomas Jordan was reportedly paid CHF 979,800 for his work in 2017. Not too shabby, eh.
