Credit Suisse Group AG sold $3.75 billion of bonds as the bank recovers from losses stemming from the March collapse of Archegos Capital Management.

The Zurich-based lender, which last tapped the U.S. high-grade market in May, issued the debt in three parts. The longest portion of the offering, a five-year $1.75 billion fixed tranche, priced to yield 0.65 percentage points over Treasuries, coming in from initial price talk in the 0.8 percentage point area, according to a person with knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be identified as the details are private. A five-year floating rate note that was part of the earlier marketing was dropped.
