Credit Suisse has told some employees they may not get their bonuses after the bank lost money on a commodity financing deal last quarter, according to people familiar with the matter.
Didier Denat, the head of the Swiss corporate and investment bank, called in staff on a weekend to tell them they may lose their bonuses, the people said. The unit that provided the financing is small, with a few dozen employees. One person has left over the issue, the people said.
