  • Credit Suisse warned it expects a loss at the group-wide level and its investment bank in the second quarter. Market conditions have remained challenging after the invasion of Ukraine and monetary tightening by central banks across the world, leading to weak customer flows and ongoing client deleveraging.
  • "Given the economic and market environment, we are accelerating our cost initiatives across the Group to maximize savings from 2023 onwards," Credit Suisse said, without providing more details.
  • Price Action: CS shares are down 6.77% at $6.94 during the premarket session on the last check Wednesday.
