Credit Suisse could cut "hundreds" of jobs as the lender mulls different savings plans that would allow it to reach its profit targets, which didn't say where it obtained the information, Bloomberg's Albertina Torsoli reports, citing the SonntagsZeitung. CEO Thomas Gottstein is mulling thinning out the Zurich-based bank's domestic branch network after the novel coronavirus crisis gave its online operations a boost, and could reverse a decision by his predecessor, Tidjane Thiam, to split the investment bank into a Global Markets division and an Investment Banking & Capital Markets one, the newspaper said. Merging the investment bank's activities would make it easier to cut jobs, SonntagsZeitung said. :[https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-07-12/credit-suisse-may-cut-hundreds-of-jobs-sonntagszeitung-says?sref=8QBk7toa]

Credit Suisse named short-term investment idea at Deutsche Bank » 07:0406/2606/26/20
Deutsche Bank analyst…
Deutsche Bank analyst Benjamin Goy placed a "Catalyst Call buy idea" on Credit Suisse as a short-term investment idea. The analyst likes the bank's combination of "high gearing to recovering" assets under management driving fee income in wealth and asset management, comparatively low credit risk and "solid" capital ratios, enabling the payment of 2019 dividend outside of Switzerland. In addition, Credit Suisse's investment bank offers additional upside with an expected strong performance in Q2, Goy tells investors in a research note. These factors should help Credit Suisse to outperform European peers "while still trading at a significant discount," says the analyst.

Credit Suisse (CS) said…
Credit Suisse (CS) said it has initiated an internal review into funds it manages that have invested in billions of dollars worth of securities sold by a firm backed by SoftBank (SFTBY), the Wall Street Journal's Julie Steinberg and Duncan Mavin report. The four funds in question invest mainly in securities seeded by Greensill Capital, the authors note. A Credit Suisse spokesman said it was "reviewing certain aspects of the matter, as is standard practice in similar circumstances." "We have read reports about a procedural matter surrounding certain investment funds at Credit Suisse," a spokesman for Greensill said, adding that the firm "is not involved in this process as it is an internal matter" for the bank and that Greensill "continues to enjoy a very strong relationship with Credit Suisse as we have done for a number of years," according to the Journal.
