Reuters exclusively reports BlackRock, Mustier’s blank-check firm eye Credit Suisse fund management arm

Reuters exclusively reported that BlackRock and Jean-Pierre Mustier’s blank-check firm are among investors expressing interest in Credit Suisse’s asset management arm, as the Swiss lender explores options for the unit after a run of costly scandals. U.S. investment firm State Street Corp is also eyeing a rival bid for all or part of the Swiss bank’s fund management business, while European asset managers including Germany’s DWS are waiting in the wings. Switzerland’s second biggest bank has been reeling from its exposure to the collapses of Greensill Capital and Archegos Capital Management, with a 4.4 billion Swiss franc ($4.75 billion) charge hitting its balance sheet after Archegos failed to meet margin commitments.
