The duel CS against UBS

UBS looked up in the financial crisis into the abyss. the Credit Suisse showed resistance and they came out relatively strongly from the crisis. However, with the Acquisition by CEO Sergio Ermotti, and in 2011 initiated a new focus on asset management, the favorites has changed the role abruptly: The future belonged to UBS. The business model of Credit Suisse is no longer considered dinosaurs, the capital-intensive investment banking that you are forced to continue to fit into the new regulatory environment. Not only inefficient, but also the capital of the gorge, Credit Suisse, therefore, came in these years. Hard to imagine how they get out of this cul-de-SAC would be able to.

in 2015, came Tidjane Thiam as the new CEO, Credit Suisse. He raised the capital in two steps to 10 billion Swiss francs, and it set the Bank on a new footing: The market-dependent investment banking, he was shocked. On drastic austerity measures, the profit was lowered threshold, and Thiam was also at Credit Suisse asset management to the centre. This model promised to be both more efficiency and more reliable profits. This brought a new impetus in the title, initially – after that, the Bank was a lot of scepticism whether the project would succeed.

The three-year restructuring phase, billion brought losses. For 2018, will now be sought for the first time, a gain in the amount of 3.2 to 3.4 billion Swiss francs. For 2019 and 2020, a Surplus is the result of 9 to 10 billion Swiss francs, predicts Thiam. Half of which is via dividends and share repurchases distributed to investors. The self-help measures of Credit Suisse are exhausted after the completion of the restructuring. As in the case of UBS for quite some time, the future profit development of the markets depends, now at Credit Suisse.

UBS with a higher level of Profit

The difference is that The profit level of UBS is higher. Since the realignment in 2012, UBS's own strength has strengthened the capital of 9 billion Swiss francs 14 billion Swiss francs, distributed and nearly 9 billion for litigation spent. CEO Ermotti estimates that UBS will generate in the next three years, now nearly as much capital available as in the last six years.

Reasons for profit erosion, decline in revenues, higher cost of equity and increased expenses for other regulatory requirements. Per share of the decline in profits is so strong, because the number of titles has doubled in the ten-year comparison.

Reason for the late-initiated restructuring, the wegfrass in the last three years, the profits. The dividends decreased in the case of two big banks – UBS has suspended distributions, in part, Credit Suisse has been able to support the dividend claims, in part only with the issue of new shares.

assets under management and Net new money

The loss of confidence in the UBS during the financial crisis led to the outflow of more than 200 billion francs in client funds. In the meantime, the UBS Wealth Management assets under management decreased by Credit Suisse reported value.

The market capitalization of Credit Suisse rose with the 2015 restructuring hardly – although 10 billion Swiss francs were pumped fresh capital into the Bank. The practice of bonuses and Dividend rights with the shares to pay for, has led it to the slow creation of additional 400 million shares, which is the CS-shareholders were diluted in ten years, by more than 140 percent.
