Elements to consider before selling or buying Credit Suisse shares

Analysis N°1

Primarily, with the economic recovery of the European Union and in particular Switzerland, the Credit Suisse Group can benefit from the growth in the banking sector and credit to gain new assets thereby attracting new investors and shareholders. This is particularly pertinent to the Forex market that is currently undergoing significant growth and wherein Credit Suisse offers a number of assets.

Analysis N°2

The current strategy of Credit Suisse is aimed overall at the global management of its assets which were more separated up until recently. This decision should enable this banking group to stabilise its situation regarding the extremely strict current European standards and thereby obtain better ratings.

Analysis N°3

We also note that the Credit Suisse Group has made great efforts to boost its expansion on an international level. It has thereby managed to gain a market share in the emerging markets which should over the long term enable it to improve its profitability.

Analysis N°4

As with the other major banks, Credit Suisse must adapt to the increasingly strict economic regulations throughout the world. Its abilities to adapt will therefore be pushed to the limit over the coming years.

Analysis N°5

Finally, it should be remembered that Credit Suisse exercises its activities in a highly competitive sector and therefore risks losing parts of its market share if it doesn’t make the necessary efforts to increase its visibility against other renowned companies in this sector.

The major competitors of Credit Suisse

Of course, although Credit Suisse is one of the largest financial companies in the world, it is not the only one in this sector and has to face some major competitors, which we suggest you discover here in a little more detail:


First of all, BPCE, which is the joint central body of Banque Populaire and Caisse d'Epargne in France, was formed from the merger of the Caisse Nationale des Caisses d'Epargne and the Banque Fédérale des Banques Populaires in 2009. It is currently the second largest cooperative banking institution in the world after Crédit Agricole and incorporates the companies that formerly made up the two banking groups and their own and joint subsidiaries.

Crédit Agricole

This bank, formerly known as the green bank because of its activities related to the agricultural world, is the largest network of cooperative and mutual banks in the world. It consists of 39 regional banks in France and became international in 1990. The group is also listed on the Euronext Paris market and is included in the CAC 40 stock market index.


 ING Group is an international bancassurance financial institution created in 1991 by the merger of the insurance company Nationale Nederlanden and the network bank NMB Postbank. ING is also the abbreviation for Internationale Nederland Groep.


Another competitor to Credit Suisse is the UBS Group which is a financial services company based in both Zurich and Basel, Switzerland. It is the largest wealth management bank in the world with invested financial assets of CHF 3,607 billion. Its core business also includes retail and commercial banking activities in direct competition with Credit Suisse.

Deutsche Bank

Finally, Deutsche Bank is the largest bank in Germany and has been in existence since 1870. It is also the 8th largest bank in Europe and a universal bank with subsidiaries in over 75 countries including London, New York and Singapore. Deutsche Bank is also a private bank and should not be confused with the German Central Bank which is the Federal Bank of Germany.

The major partners of Credit Suisse

While it faces strong competition, the Credit Suisse Group can also count on major strategic allies, which we suggest you discover through two specific examples of this type of alliance:

JP Morgan

Firstly, the group recently signed a partnership with JP Mprgan Asset Management to launch the Credit Suisse JPMorgan Sustainable Nutrition Fund, which aims to invest in companies interested in the link between nutrition, health, biodiversity and climate. The fund has over USD 250 million in assets under management and will focus on companies that make food systems less carbon intensive. The nutrition fund thus targets the UN's sustainable development and climate change goals. It is a high-conviction global equity UCITS portfolio of 40-60 stocks that is made available to investors on a daily basis.

MoneyPark and PriceHubble

Credit Suisse Group has also combined its banking and digital finance businesses with MoneyPark's real estate and mortgage services and PriceHubble's Big Data and analytics. This new comprehensive real estate service offering will be distinguished by its digital integration, transparency and speed. This is a strategic partnership that will provide property owners with expert support and solutions that are unrivalled in the market today. The three partners aim to provide a seamless, innovative and new customer experience in the property buying, selling and financing market with a property platform that will enable customers to move simply through their property journey from 2022.

Positive factors for Credit Suisse shares
The factors in favour of a rise in the Credit Suisse share price:

It is absolutely necessary to have a comprehensive knowledge of a company before investing online in its share price. Among the factors and points that you should monitor before launching into trading on the stock markets is a full knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of an asset, the strengths and weak points of the company concerned. Here we examine them in detail for the Credit Suisse Group.  

Firstly, we will of course examine the strengths of the Credit Suisse Group and the factors that could promote its growth in the coming years and enable it to more effectively face the competition:

  • Firstly, we know that the Credit Suisse Group is a large company and owner of a number of franchises in its primary sector. This of course enables an increase in its sources of revenue and profits and thereby does not expose the company to risks associated to revenue from a single income source.
  • Among the advantages of this group we also note the fact that its basic strategy largely depends on its durability which enables it to benefit from a quality brand image with consumers and its clients.
  • Still from a strategic point of view, we also note that the Credit Suisse Group has achieved the completion of a number of merger operations in the private banking sector at the right time which has enabled the bank to maximise its profitability and reduce the risks.
  • Another undeniable advantage of this group relates to its strong presence on an international level.  It should be remembered that Credit Suisse currently operates subsidiaries in over 50 countries around the world and employs more than 50,000 people in these countries.
  • Finally, the group is also able to retain its popularity and gain new clients through the implementation of regular sponsorships and the sponsoring of large scale sports events that are heavily featured in the media.
Negative factors for Credit Suisse shares
The factors in favour of a drop in the Credit Suisse share price:

We have just examined the various advantages that the Credit Suisse group offers and its strong points compared with the competition.  But clearly this company does not only have advantages, there are some weak points that could hamper its growth and lead to falling trends or limit a rising trend in this asset’s price. Here are a few clear examples:

  • The first weak point that we should examine here concerning the Credit Suisse Bank is that despite its efforts in sponsorships, it has difficulties in achieving the same level of visibility as other brands in this activity sector with whom it competes. In fact, even now, the group’s investments in advertising and marketing remain relatively low.
  • Finally, the second and last major disadvantage of this asset and a weak point of this company concerns the performance of its activities as an investment bank. Credit Suisse has particularly concentrated its efforts on its growth in the retail banking sector, its investment banking division has shown a relatively weak performance compared with the competition in this sector.

The factors that we have cited will of course enable you to better understand how investors will perceive Credit Suisse shares but it is important to not use these alone. In fact, you should systematically complete comprehensive fundamental and technical analyses of this asset before implementing your trading strategies whilst also taking into account movements in this data over time through announcements and events that are susceptible to cause changes in the BP share price.
