Recently, Wilson loops in strongly coupled AdS/CFT were found to be invariant under a curious one-parameter family of deformations. In this talk we analyze the nonlocal symmetry underlying this observation. We show that it acts as a raising operator on the Yangian charges and generates the spectral parameter of the model. We also speculate about the possibility to extend this symmetry beyond the strong-coupling limit.
