Costs may have to come down as much as $567m.

Credit Suisse is considering a cost-savings package in response to the recent appreciation of Switzerland's currency, a Swiss newspaper reported on Sunday.

Reuters reports that the NZZ am Sonntag paper, citing a source close to Credit Suisse's top management, said the bank's costs may have to come down by as much as $567.99m because of the franc's strength.

The franc surged after the Swiss central bank removed its cap on the currency's value against the euro, putting pressure on big Swiss companies like Credit Suisse, which have a large portion of cash in foreign currencies but report in francs.
