Powell's monthly meeting logs for March, released by the Fed on May 5, showed the U.S. central bank chief spoke with Ralph Hamers, then the UBS chief executive, for 30 minutes on March 14. That was five days before UBS agreed to buy Credit Suisse in a deal engineered by Swiss authorities to avoid more market-shaking turmoil in global banking.
Hundreds of Credit Suisse's employees are resigning each week in a sign of uncertainty gripping the lender while it is being taken over by rival UBS, two people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. Credit Suisse bankers, worried about their future are seeking safer employment at competitors, one person said. Swiss newspaper Blick reported earlier on Wednesday that each day around 150 people worldwide were resigning from Credit Suisse while one of the two people said they saw about 200 resignations a week.
HONG KONG/SHANGHAI (Reuters) -Credit Suisse has scrapped plans to set up a locally incorporated bank in China to sidestep a potential regulatory conflict arising from its merger with UBS, said two sources with direct knowledge of the matter. Embattled Credit Suisse had been preparing for years to set up a wholly owned local bank in China. The reason for the Swiss lender's decision was that UBS, which is acquiring Credit Suisse as part of a government-orchestrated rescue of its smaller rival, already has a locally incorporated bank in China, said the sources.
ZURICH (Reuters) -Switzerland's Social Democratic Party has drawn up a proposal to shrink UBS assets after its takeover of Credit Suisse to reduce the risk of another expensive state-backed rescue, its lawmaker was quoted as saying on Tuesday. It was not clear, though, how much traction the proposal, which was presented by Samira Marti in an interview with Swiss newspaper Aargauer Zeitung, can get. The combined bank will have a balance sheet of around 1.5 trillion Swiss francs - roughly double the size of the Swiss economy, posing enormous risks to the country especially as it enjoys an implicit state guarantee, Marti said.

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 acquisition of Bank of the West supports Bank of Montreal's (BMO) fiscal Q2 results as revenues increase. Yet, higher expenses and provisions act as headwinds.
The disclosure underscores how some aspects of the tie-up between the two banks, arranged hastily over a weekend in mid-March by the Swiss government to stave off a broader banking crisis, have yet to be ironed out. The Swiss government agreed at the time to shoulder up to 9 billion Swiss francs ($10.12 billion) in potential losses from the deal and offered liquidity assistance of up to 100 billion Swiss francs. UBS said in the filing that it expected the main terms of the loss protection agreement to be agreed prior to the acquisition of Credit Suisse being completed.
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 directly disputed the Swiss financial regulator’s basis for writing down $17bn of its additional tier 1 bonds, in a private letter aimed at sparing staff bonuses that were tied to the debt. Investors representing at least $4.5bn of wiped-out Credit Suisse AT1 bonds filed a lawsuit against Finma last month, seeking to overturn the Swiss regulator’s cancellation of their holdings that was imposed as part of the bank’s shotgun marriage to UBS two months ago. The aggrieved bondholders earlier this month forced Finma to hand over a decree it had issued to Credit Suisse on March 19 — the day the UBS merger was struck — ordering the bank to write down the AT1 bonds.
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.
Fair value adjustments of the combined group's financial assets and liabilities, litigation provisions, and other factors are expected to hit UBS Group (UBS) shareholders' equity by $28.3 billion.

Investing.com -- UBS Group AG (SIX:UBSG) has said it could stand to lose around $17 billion from its planned merger with smaller rival Credit Suisse (SIX:CSGN), but noted that the tie-up will provide other benefits.
UBS Group AG was rushed into buying cross-town rival Credit Suisse Group AG in a deal it did not want, as a global bank crisis worsened the latter's finances and prompted authorities to take swift action, a regulatory filing showed. UBS, in a Tuesday filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, told investors it had less than four days to conduct due diligence given the "emergency circumstances". Credit Suisse's involvement in a series of corporate collapses spooked clients who began withdrawing their money, a trend that accelerated when U.S. bank failures sparked fear of a broader banking crisis.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) -UBS is expected to secure unconditional European Union antitrust approval for its planned takeover of struggling Credit Suisse, people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday, putting the Swiss bank closer to completing the deal. 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 in March, in a shotgun merger engineered by Swiss authorities to avoid more market-shaking turmoil in global banking. The European Commission, which is scheduled to finish its preliminary review of the deal by June 7, and Credit Suisse declined to comment.

Credit Suisse's Australian metals and mining team will join boutique local advisory firm Gresham, according to a source familiar with the matter, as the collapsed Swiss bank's takeover by rival UBS gathers pace. Managing Director Adam Reid, who joined the bank last year from RBC Capital Markets, will leave alongside Vice President Clarence Fok, junior analyst Ashley Low and associate Kevin Tian. Gresham did not immediately respond to a request for comment, while Credit Suisse and Fok declined to comment.
NEW YORK (Reuters) -At least seven top Barclays Plc technology, media and telecom investment bankers have resigned to join UBS Group AG in the United States in the last few days, people familiar with the matter said. The moves add to a trio of Barclays U.S. investment bankers that UBS announced it hired last month. Many Credit Suisse bankers are based in the United States.
UBS could have to lure investors with significantly higher yields when it next sells Additional Tier 1 bonds, paying what analysts say could be a punitive price for a Swiss decision to wipe out Credit Suisse AT1s under their shotgun merger. The price of a UBS U.S. dollar AT1, first repayable in 2027, dipped to 68 cents on March 20, the day after the merger roiled the AT1 market, from 88 before and has since recovered to 78 cents. The risk that integrating Credit Suisse takes longer than expected, becoming costly, and a potential rating downgrade were other reasons why UBS was expected to pay a higher premium than it used to as one of Europe's largest AT1 issuers.
