According to persons participating in the negotiations, the Financial Times said that Credit Suisse executives are in talks with the bank’s big investors to reassure them amid growing concerns over the Swiss lender’s financial health.

According to a senior executive participating in the negotiations, the bank’s teams actively engaged with its most important clients and counterparties over the weekend and received “messages of support” from influential investors, the Financial Times reported.

Last week, Credit Suisse stock reached new lows. Year to date, the stock has decreased by nearly 55%.

Credit default swaps (CDS) from the bank, which offer investors protection against risks like default, saw a dramatic increase in spreads on Friday. They acted on rumours that the Swiss lender was seeking money, according to a memo from its CEO Ulrich Koerner.

The executive reportedly refuted claims that the Swiss bank had formally contacted its investors about potentially raising more capital, according to the Financial Times, and insisted that Credit Suisse “was trying to avoid such a move with its share price at record lows and higher borrowing costs due to rating downgrades.”

The bank informed Reuters that it is now reviewing its strategy, which may involve asset sales and divestitures, and that an announcement is anticipated on October 27 when the bank reports its third-quarter results.

According to Reuters, Credit Suisse has also been in talks with investors to raise money with a variety of scenarios in mind, including the possibility that the bank may “mostly” abandon the U.S. market.

According to John Vail, chief global strategist at Nikko Asset Management, the latest from Credit Suisse indicates a “rocky period” ahead but could result in a change in the U.S. Federal Reserve’s course. Vail made this statement on CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia” on Monday.

The idea that central banks would likely start to show some remorse at some point, Vail added, “is the silver lining at the end of this period as both inflation is down and financial circumstances worsen drastically.” “I don’t believe the world is going to end,”

Analysts at Citi warned in a study about the potential “contagion impact” on U.S. banks by “a large European bank” that “we struggle to envisage something systemic.” Credit Suisse was not mentioned by the analysts.

The study made reference to the financial crisis that broke out in 2007 and stated, “We appreciate the nature of the concerns, but the current position is night and day from 2007 since the balance sheets are fundamentally different in terms of capital and liquidity.”

According to the research, “We think the U.S. bank stocks are highly appealing today.”
