Report - C Suisse may need to cut bonuses by up to 60%

Money Roll


Bloomberg News reports that Credit Suisse may need to cut bonuses by as much as 60% this year because of losses incurred by a writedown, according to calculations made by Schweiz am Sonntag.

CEO Tidjane Thiam wants to substantially write down assets following the acquisition of investment bank Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette in 2000. Impairment charges on $6.3bn in legacy assets could lead to an annual loss of $2.6bn - to $2.8bn, the newspaper reported.

The bank may thus need to slash bankers’ bonuses by as much as 60%, in accordance with rules set by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, or Finma, according to the newspaper. The supervisor requires financial institutions to cut bonuses in case of financial loss.
