The agreement will see the Swiss government cover losses of up to 9 billion Swiss francs ($10 billion) following UBS’ acquisition of its rival.
“As part of the agreement, the Swiss government guarantees losses of up to CHF 9bn if realized on a designated portfolio of Credit Suisse non-core assets once UBS bears the first CHF 5bn of any realized losses,” UBS said in a statement.
“UBS will manage these assets in a prudent and diligent manner and intends to minimize any losses and maximize value realization on these assets.”
