Goals / Remit
Credit Suisse is a leading global private bank and wealth manager with distinctive investment banking capabilities. Our strategy builds on Credit Suisse’s core strengths: its position as a leading global wealth manager, its specialist investment banking capabilities and its strong presence in our home market of Switzerland. We take a balanced approach to capture the wealth management opportunities in emerging markets, the largest of which is in the Asia Pacific region, while also serving key developed markets with an emphasis on Switzerland. Founded in 1856, we today have a global reach with operations in over 50 countries and 46,000 employees from over 170 different nations. Our broad footprint helps us to generate a geographically balanced stream of revenues and net new assets and allows us to capture growth opportunities around the world. We serve our clients through three regionally focused divisions: Swiss Universal Bank, International Wealth Management and Asia Pacific.
Credit Suisse has contributed actively to the EU debate on solving Too Big to Fail Risk for global and European banks, via the EU Bank Resolution and Recovery Directive, and CRD6; and is engaged in a number of capital markets related policy and legislative initiatives, notably MiFID2/MiFIR, AIFMD, UCITs, EMIR, Capital Markets Union, sustainable finance policy, cross-border distribution of funds, and Securitization. The bank is also engaged in other policy topics including environment, energy efficiency, FinTech policy, sustainability and corporate governance in Europe and globally.
