Credit Suisse Group is a Swiss bank. It is headquartered in Zurich.

The company was founded in 1856 as Schweizerische Kreditanstalt (SKA, English: Swiss Credit Institution) jointly by Alfred Escher and the German bank Allgemeine Deutsche Credit-Anstalt which held 50% of the equity.

After the bank had financial problems because the customers lost confidence, it was decided to integrate Credit Suisse into UBS.[1] This decision was communicated on March 19, 2023.
