Credit Suisse increases buyback spend to retire $1.8bn of senior
Credit Suisse has increased the cap on its senior unsecured liability management exercise to buy back all the notes tendered by investors. The bank will remove $1.8bn of its debt from the market, spending just under $2.2bn by buying the bonds back at cash premiums of between 1.25 and 3.25 percentage points.
