Our business divisions
The Group is organized into four divisions – Wealth Management, Investment Bank, Swiss Bank and Asset Management – and four geographic regions – Switzerland, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia Pacific and Americas.
Our operating businesses are supported by focused corporate functions at the Group Executive Board level. The bank’s corporate functions partner with the divisions and regions as part of our effort to provide effective collaboration, management and control oversight.
|Chief Financial Officer||The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) function actively manages the bank’s capital, funding, liquidity and expenses to ensure Credit Suisse is well-capitalized and has a strong balance sheet. CFO partners with the divisions and functions across the bank to deliver valuable insights and supports them in their strategic priorities. The CFO oversees Group Finance, Product Control, Treasury, Tax, Investor Relations, Corporate Development, XVA and Divisional and Regional Finance teams and acts as lead for the Asset Resolution Unit and IBOR transition.|
|Chief Technology & Operations Officer||The simplification of the business model and IT infrastructure is key to improving effectiveness as well as defining clear accountability and ownership. We have centralized our IT and operations functions under the new Chief Technology & Operations Officer.|
|Chief Risk Officer and Chief Compliance Officer||The Chief Risk Officer and the Chief Compliance Officer functions monitor bank activities on all levels and provide accountability for risk management. They are responsible for the bank’s regulatory interactions, assess the potential impact of regulatory developments, govern the Group's risk management framework and provide independent risk oversight.|
|General Counsel||Provides legal, policy and regulatory advice in the context of potential or actual legal matters and investigations. It drives strategic legal risk management and manages our relationship with political stakeholders.|
|Human Resources||Credit Suisse's success depends on whether we have the most talented people who live our client-focused strategy and our partnership culture.|
Sustainability Governance and Chief Sustainability Officer
Sustainability remains a core component of our strategy.
|Our organizational structure is designed to ensure that ESG standards are embedded across regions and divisions in our client-based solutions as well as in our own operations as a company. Following the announcement of the broader reorganization of the Group in 2021, we have also reorganized our sustainability function. The sustainability function supports the creation of a cohesive and dedicated sustainability offering across the bank. Our Chief Sustainability Officer is responsible for the implementation of our sustainability strategy, which spans delivering sustainable solutions, enabling client transitions, engaging with thought leadership, driving our own transition and adapting our culture and engagement. The governance of sustainability is exercised through the established governance bodies of the Group, as well as a number of specially focused boards and committees.|
