The Finance division at Credit Suisse aspires to be the best Finance division in the industry and a core driver of the bank's vision. Our focus is to manage the bank's capital, funding, liquidity and expenses to ensure we are well capitalized and have a strong enough balance sheet to withstand adversity and uncertainty. We are committed to drive cost efficiencies, improve control, quality and efficiency of our information and to engage with the businesses to actively prepare the bank for regulatory changes. To fulfill our mandate we need the skills, experience and engagement of our employees.

The Recovery and Resolution Office (RRO) is a department within Treasury responsible for maintaining the Recovery and Resolution Plan (RRP) as well as interpreting and communicating resulting requirements and ensuring they are integrated in the bank's operational processes. The RRP details Credit Suisse's preparations to manage a severe financial crisis including documenting specific recovery options available to Credit Suisse as part of a Recovery Plan. Failure to recover from a severe stress could force Credit Suisse into resolution and therefore resolution information is also required. The RRP is refreshed on an annual basis and requires significant cross-divisional input and co-ordination.
The EMEA RRO reports jointly to the Global RRO and the UK CFO. The role includes a broad range of activities in the field of Recovery and Resolution, with a focus on ensuring the development and maintenance of financial capabilities relevant to recovery and resolution scenarios.
