Credit Suisse Named Best Private Bank Globally by Euromoney Magazine

Credit Suisse was named the best private bank globally for the second consecutive year by Euromoney magazine, a leading publication for the global banking and capital markets. In addition, Credit Suisse received regional and country awards, including for being the best private bank in Western Europe, in the Middle East and in Central and Eastern Europe. The accolades are based on the results of Euromoney’s Private Banking Survey 2011.

Walter Berchtold, Chief Executive Officer Private Banking Credit Suisse, said: “We are proud to have won these prestigious awards, which recognize the strength of our integrated banking business, our global reach and our first-class investment advice and expertise. We are particularly pleased to have maintained the top ranking globally for the second year running in a survey that includes our peers’ opinions of the best providers in the private banking industry. This achievement underscores the benefit we have brought to our clients by executing our strategy consistently over many years. We will focus on remaining a trusted financial partner to our clients. We believe that our Private Banking business is poised to capture the attractive growth opportunities that exist in the market thanks to our disciplined investment in our global footprint, our people, our platforms and our comprehensive product and service offering.”

The annual Euromoney rankings are derived from a qualitative and quantitative review of the best services in private banking by markets and by areas of service. The survey includes competitors’ perceptions of the best-performing providers in defined categories.
