We Offer

We are a department which values Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) and is committed to realizing the firm’s D&I ambition which is an integral part of our global Conduct and Ethics Standard

Recovery and Resolution Planning (RRP) is a top priority for Credit Suisse as both systemically important banks and regulators are in the final phase of delivering on Too Big To Fail regulations and respective solutions which are intended to avoid a repeat of some of the failings which were observed during the financial crisis of a decade ago. Whilst international regulators have agreed on key RRP concepts, the focus now is on their refinement and translation into practical capabilities and their integration into business as usual banking functions and processes. Credit Suisse is strongly committed to build RRP capabilities to ensure it is fully resolvable.

The Recovery and Resolution Office (RRO) is a department within Treasury which drives Credit Suisse’s preparations to manage a severe financial crisis, advises on strategic changes required in response to global Too Big To Fail regulations and generally works on promoting the resolvability of the firm. Our role therefore as second line of defense is to review and challenge how RRP capabilities are developed and implemented so that we can ensure that resolvability objectives are met. The RRO has offices in Zurich, London, New York, Singapore and Wroclaw.
