Awards for Excellence 2018Quick read: Thiam and the Credit Suisse revolution
Euromoney chose Tidjane Thiam as Banker of the Year 2018: read on for a guide to Peter Lee's feature in the August issue of Euromoney examining the story behind the revolution that Thiam brought to Credit Suisse.
The master strategist: How Tidjane Thiam brought a revolution to Credit Suisse
It took an outsider to turn around Credit Suisse, to force executives and shareholders to accept that they had been following a false dream of a trading-dominated business that could somehow avoid blow-ups and produce acceptable returns. Tidjane Thiam has shrunk those businesses but also given them a chance to live on now as the servants of a revived wealth management operation with a focus on the richest entrepreneurs in emerging markets. His three-year battle to reduce risk, cut costs, raise capital, deal with regulators and identify and grow more promising business will be a case study in bank restructuring.
