Credit Suisse takes $51m derivatives hedging loss

Losses on hedges for uncollateralised corporate derivatives contributed to a 47% fall in earnings at Credit Suisse’s trading division in the first quarter.

The $51 million hit was more than triple a $15 million cost incurred for the same reasons in Q1 2019. First quarter net revenues for the International Banking & Capital Markets (IBCM) arm were $189 million, down from $357 million the year-ago quarter. 

It could not be confirmed at press time if the losses were caused by funding valuation
