Credit Suisse Planning to Reduce Its Workforce

Credit Suisse plans to reduce its workforce by 6,500 jobs; the Zurich-based lender has reported significant losses primarily the result of a $2 billion provision for a settlement with the US Department of Justice over mortgage portfolios; the firm has already cut 7,250 jobs in 2016 and is focused on a new strategy under CEO Tidjane Thiam who was appointed in 2015.  Source
