The UK’s financial regulator has added Credit Suisse Group AG to a watchlist over concerns that it hasn’t sufficiently addressed risky culture as the lender struggles to draw a line under a series of scandals and turbulence. 

The Financial Conduct Authority told Credit Suisse last month it was adding the bank’s UK operations and international unit to a list of firms warranting close monitoring after a series of scandals, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. The regulator cited concern over its risk controls, governance and culture.
