Lunchtime Links: Credit Suisse hot, UBS (still) not

...particularly if you are a private banker. While UBS suffered CHF49bn outflows from its wealth management and business banking unit in the last quarter, Credit Suisse appears to have been on the receiving end, with CHF11bn of new assets going directly to its private bank. UBS bankers can draw some consolation from the fact that their bank is reporting a "small profit" for Q3, while Credit Suisse expects a CHF1.3bn loss. However, despite a $59.2bn bailout courtesy of the Swiss government, Citigroup points out that UBS still looks under-capitalised compared to Credit Suisse which has raised its own cash from investors and now has a tier-one capital ratio of 13.7%.
