SWITZERLAND DAYBOOK: Credit Suisse U.S. Tax Case, UBS M&A Unit

March 29 (Bloomberg) -- Credit Suisse Group AG seemed to have structures in place “that prevented systemic fraud” in the United States, Neue Zuercher Zeitung reported, citing an interview with Donald S. Beyer, the U.S. ambassador to Switzerland.

Beyer expects that lawsuits by U.S. authorities will be limited “to a few people,” the newspaper reported, and the ambassador doesn’t have any hints of systemic fraud committed by the bank. The Credit Suisse case differs from UBS regarding those structures, the paper said, citing Beyer.
