UBS, Credit Suisse SG operations "uninterrupted" post-acquisition: MAS

Both banks will operate on separate licences in Singapore.

UBS and Credit Suisse operations in Singapore will continue uninterrupted after the completed acquisition, said the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

Both banks will maintain separate licences in Singapore. The entities have established governance structures to oversee and facilitate the smooth integration of their Singapore operations. 

Their main focus in Singapore is on private banking and investment banking.

MAS added that it maintains close communication with the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) and the banks regarding the integration process.
