ZURICH (Reuters) -Credit Suisse was ordered to pay $926 million to Georgia's former prime minister on Friday for losing part of his fortune, in a Singapore court ruling that represents one of the biggest legal awards made against the bank. Singapore's International Commercial Court said a unit of Credit Suisse had not acted in good faith and neglected to keep the assets of Bidzina Ivanishvili safe, in the latest blow to the troubled bank, which is being taken over by UBS. Credit Suisse immediately said it would appeal the decision.

Credit Suisse should soon repay the emergency liquidity that the Swiss government gave the stricken bank to aid its rescue, Finance Minister Karin Keller-Sutter said in an interview published on Friday. The country's second biggest lender was given access to 200 billion Swiss francs - half of which was covered by government guarantees - as part of its state orchestrated rescue in March. The bank has already paid back some of the 170 billion francs of loans, which included 100 billion francs in liquidity support from the Swiss National Bank (SNB).
UBS on Thursday won unconditional EU antitrust approval to acquire Credit Suisse as part of a government-orchestrated rescue of its Swiss rival. The European Commission said the deal would not raise competition concerns in Europe, confirming a Reuters story earlier this month. UBS, which is twice as big as Credit Suisse by assets, agreed to buy its competitor for 3 billion Swiss francs in stock and to assume up to 5 billion francs in losses in March, in a shotgun merger engineered by Swiss authorities to avert contagion in global banking.
The Swiss government on Thursday moved to speed up work on extending a public liquidity backstop Credit Suisse received access to in March under emergency rules to other systemically important banks and make it a permanent part of regulatory framework. Provision of state-guaranteed cash for such banks were they to fall in distress was proposed over a year ago with the finance ministry tasked with preparing draft legislation by mid-2023. But a global banking turmoil and a deepening crisis of confidence in Credit Suisse prompted Swiss authorities to authorize the central bank in March to provide 200 billion Swiss francs ($225.00 billion) in liquidity to the nation's no. 2 lender in emergency measures.
(Reuters) -UBS has been a net gainer in customer balances following its rescue of Credit Suisse, Chairman Colm Kelleher said on Wednesday, citing positive feedback from wealthy clients. Bank mergers can sometimes lead to turbulence, with clients withdrawing their cash, although this tended to happen very quickly, Kelleher told a WSJ event in London, while some clients come back. "I think the rot has stopped and we have clients coming back," Kelleher added, saying feedback from Credit Suisse clients about UBS had so far been positive.
Switzerland's justice authorities said Tuesday that 230 complaints had been filed over a decision by financial regulators to cut the value of high-risk Credit Suisse bonds to zero, to facilitate the stricken bank's takeover by UBS. Switzerland's biggest bank bought out its rival for $3.25 billion on March 19, under strong pressure from the regulators FINMA, the government and the central bank, to prevent Credit Suisse from collapsing.And on Monday, Britain's Financial Times newspaper said employ

Credit Suisse senior managers will have their outstanding bonus payments for 2022 either cancelled or reduced following an order issued on Tuesday by the Swiss Finance Ministry. The order affects the top three levels of Credit Suisse management and follows the multi-billion franc state rescue of Switzerland's second biggest bank. Governments rarely impose a complete halt to bonus payouts, but in Switzerland there has been public backlash against them at Credit Suisse, whose rescue earlier this year was backed by roughly 260 billion Swiss francs of state funding and guarantees.
DOHA (Reuters) -Standard Chartered CEO Bill Winters on Tuesday said the sale of Credit Suisse to UBS was "surprising" given the "unusual" terms of the deal, which prioritised shareholders over bondholders. "The conclusion was very surprising to me, in terms of the way that the bank was resolved through this very unusual sale to UBS, with associated unusual payments to shareholders versus bondholders," Winters told an audience at the Qatar Economic Forum, organised by Bloomberg. Under the rescue deal, engineered by Swiss authorities over one March weekend amid global banking turmoil, UBS agreed to buy Credit Suisse for 3 billion Swiss francs ($3.4 billion) in stock and to assume up to 5 billion francs in losses that would stem from winding down part of the business.

(Reuters) -A derivatives committee ruled on Monday that a bankruptcy credit event had not occurred in relation to Credit Suisse, quashing investors' efforts to trigger a payout on credit insurance linked to the Swiss lender. The ruling was in response to an investor question about $17 billion in senior and subordinated bonds issued by Credit Suisse whose holders were wiped out when the Swiss bank was taken over by UBS in March in a state-assisted deal. It should not surprise investors who have read the Credit Suisse prospectuses, said Philip Jacoby, chief investment officer at Spectrum Asset Management in Stamford, Connecticut, one of the biggest holders of the bank's debt months before its takeover.

Credit Suisse came close to falling below minimum levels of cash held at the Swiss central bank days before its forced takeover by UBS, a regulatory document shows. As of mid-March 2023, Credit Suisse barely reached its internal cash limit at the Swiss National Bank. A breach indicates a risk that the bank will not be able to make payments properly, Swiss financial regulator FINMA wrote in the German-language decree, which has not previously been disclosed.
LONDON (Reuters) -A European body that reviews disputes in the credit default swaps market said on Thursday it will discuss whether a bankruptcy credit event occurred at Credit Suisse after regulators wiped out the bank's junior bondholders in a state-assisted merger with UBS. The EMEA Credit Derivatives Determination Committee (CDDC) said it will meet on Friday to discuss the fresh question raised by an investor on Thursday, it said on its website. Holders of Credit Suisse's $17 billion of Additional Tier 1 (AT1) bonds were wiped out in March in a 3 billion Swiss franc ($3.35 billion) merger, in the first rescue of a global bank since the 2008 financial crisis.

Qatar's sovereign wealth fund, Credit Suisse's second-largest investor, has explored seeking redress for losses incurred by the bank's takeover, two people familiar with the matter said, as legal challenges to Switzerland's state-backed rescue mount. The Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) sought legal advice on whether it had any claim against Swiss authorities, including through international arbitration, after Credit Suisse Group AG's forced sale to UBS Group AG at a fraction of its market value, the two sources said.
LONDON (Reuters) -Holders of credit insurance linked to Credit Suisse bonds will not get a payout after a committee that adjudicates on disputes in the derivatives market said on Wednesday the bank's state-engineered merger with UBS was not a credit event. The Swiss bank in March was taken over by UBS in a state-assisted rescue deal that wiped out Credit Suisse's $17 billion Additional Tier 1 (AT1) bondholders. "A Governmental Intervention Credit Event had not occurred," the EMEA Credit Derivatives Determination Committee (CDDC) said in a statement on its website, responding to a question from an investor last week.
