Major central banks, already plotting rate hikes in a fight against inflation, are preparing a common pullback from key financial markets in a first-ever round of global quantitative tightening expected to restrict credit and add stress to an already-slowing world economy.
Beyond the challenges of the macroeconomic environment, Credit Suisse is contending with its own overhaul and a series of setbacks that have shaken investor confidence in the bank. Ratings agencies Fitch and Standard & Poor’s both downgraded its debt ratings in May.
Credit Suisse said its second-quarter earnings would also be affected by continued volatility in the market value of the bank’s 8.6% holding in Allfunds Group.
The bank said it aimed to accelerate cost initiatives announced as part of its reorganization in November, “with the aim of maximizing savings from 2023 onwards.”
It said it now planned to operate at a group-wide Common Equity Tier 1 ratio, its key capital metric, of around 13.5% “in the near-term,” below its 2024 target for above 14% 及其 2021 CET1 ratio of 14.4%.
“We remain focused on the disciplined execution of our strategy, delivering on our regulatory remediation programs and placing risk management at the core of the bank,” 它说.
