Julius Baer: struggling to hold on to the wealth

The strong profit growth for Julius Baer's private banking business is noteworthy because the Swiss bank has continued to increase revenues rather than simply cutting costs.

KPMG Consulting: Teutonic triumph follows Anglo failure

Following the US consultancy unit's float in 2001, KPMG is now separating its consultancy and auditing businesses elsewhere.

Kuehne & Nagel: positive moves

Kuehne & Nagel is continuing its growth strategy with another acquisition in Central America. As economic slowdown keeps freight growth down in the developed world, it makes sense for K&N to focus on less exploited markets to maintain its profit growth.

Kuehne & Nagel: results hint at further industry consolidation

Swiss logistics company Kuehne & Nagel has released its financial results for the first half of 2007.

K&N can now fully integrate the unit's activities into its network, controlling the subsidiary's operations for the benefit of its global network. Setting up joint ventures and turning the successful ones into wholly owned subsidiaries is a wise strategy for K&N. It can test the waters in each market before putting forward full capital and resource commitment.
