Credit Suisse: profit surges, but 'headwinds' to persist

(CercleFinance.com) - Credit Suisse reported its 12th consecutive quarter of year-on-year earnings growth, despite a challenging market environment, the Swiss investment bank said on Wednesday.


The group made a net profit of 881 million Swiss francs in the third quarter, compared to 424 million Swiss francs in the same period last year.

Its net revenue rose by 9% to 5.3 billion Swiss francs in the past quarter, with asset management revenues up 12%.

Investment banking revenues, across markets and advisory, underwriting and financing activities, have also grown strongly, up 8%, CS said.

It has gathered record net new assets of 72 billion Swiss francs across the group year-to-date, it added.

While Credit Suisse believes that the long-term outlook remains "attractive" in wealth management, it also expects headwinds from the ongoing challenging geopolitical environment - in particular, the US-China trade dispute and Brexit, to persist.

The market didn't seem to like these comments, with the share down 3% in Zurich on Wednesday morning.
