Credit Suisse has filed five insurance claims related to $1.17b in exposure across two of its Greensill-linked supply chain finance funds, the bank said in a document published on its website. 

As of 31 December, the Swiss investment bank had filed five claims related to $846m in exposure for its Luxembourg-based supply chain finance fund, the document read.
