Three RMs have joined the Zurich-listed firm's private banking arm Down Under.
Credit Suisse has appointed a group of relationship managers in Australia, part of a build-out of its business in the country.
The RMs are Ann-Laure Alia, Loughlin MacGowan and Jason Winderbaum, according to a statement from by Michael Marr, market group head for Australia, Credit Suisse Private Banking Asia-Pacific.
