Credit Suisse in the Middle East

Credit Suisse made headlines today for another reason, with Bloomberg reporting that the Swiss financial institute is losing Middle East staff due to a toxic work culture. According to the report, Bruno Daher, Credit Suisse’s top executive in the Middle East had to apologize after telling his banker’s he would put a gun to their head if they didn’t shape up.

Although Daher has helped build Credit Suisse into a key player in the Middle East, the report states the testosterone-driven workplace he has built is being questioned, following the departure of five top bankers since the start of 2019. Another 20 junior relationship managers in the Middle East and Africa also left in that duration, highlighting the Swiss financial institutes recent negative turn-of-events which include the loss of partners Greensill Capital and Archegos Capital Management.
