Wednesday webinar at one: Governance lessons from the demise of Credit Suisse

Wednesday 08 November 2023 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

Lapses in corporate governance and poor capital allocation decisions played a vital role in the collapse of Credit Suisse; investors can draw some important lessons from its demise.

You will get the perspective of an analyst that covered Credit Suisse for five years on what went wrong and potential red flags to look out for in the future.

Learning objectives

  • Understand what led to the collapse of Credit Suisse
  • Expand on the narrow understanding of ‘governance’ to include capital allocation and risk management
  • Highlight the role played by a focus on cutting costs in risk management failure
