Reuters reports that Credit Suisse has received the green light from various regulatory authorities to launch its wealth management business in the Philippines in a move that allows the Swiss bank to tap the country’s onshore wealth.
The bank received a license from the Securities and Exchange Commission and approval from the central bank, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, according to a company statement.
In the Philippines, Credit Suisse’s existing services include advisory on capital raising, liability management, M&A, and structured finance. In 2011, it set up an onshore brokerage in the country covering equity research, sales, and trading.
