Credit Suisse warned of reporting a Q4 loss after incurring fresh legal costs and adding that business in its trading and wealth management divisions slowed, with an overall drop in assets. Credit Suisse will make a fresh legal provision of CHF 500mn ($545mn) to settle legacy cases related to the bank, on track for an overall quarterly loss of around CHF 1.6bn ($1.75bn).
