Several banks in trouble
A few days ago, the bankruptcy of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank were announced, raising fears of a banking crisis. Crédit Suisse subsequently fell victim to the market turmoil caused by the collapse of these US banks, forcing it to rely on funding from the Swiss central bank amounting to $54 billion.
Swiss regulators are eager to present a solution for Credit Suisse’s future before markets reopen on Monday, but the complexity of the merger of the two giants could extend talks into Sunday, Reuters added.
