The UBS-Credit Suisse Deal has shaken markets all around the world. When the two banks were coerced into joining forces by Swiss regulators to stabilize a faltering Credit Suisse, the union has been referred to being a forced union.

Both Swiss private banks have non-resident Indian teams and specific market heads to cover Offshore Territories, like the Southeast Asian countries of Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines. The overlap of managing directors produced for each sector will probably need to be lessened between the two institutions.

The India-based technology back offices of UBS and Credit Suisse, which together employ about 14,000 people, are likely to see the notable effects of the massive bailout in Swiss banking as Job-reduction and a cost-conscious approach follow UBS’s takeover of its distressed rival, leading to job losses at the multi-city facilities known locally for global in-house centers (GIC).

As concerns over which global bank will fall next have grown because of back-to-back failures, the future of employees at Credit Suisse’s India-based technology back offices is in jeopardy.

In three Indian cities, Credit Suisse employs roughly 14,000 workers. Role rationalization following the merger might result in several job losses in these sectors because UBS will aim to keep only the best employees at Credit Suisse, according to sources.

There are Offices for UBS and Credit Suisse in Mumbai, Pune, Gurgaon, and Hyderabad.

According to a bank spokeswoman who spoke to sources, the Swiss lender Credit Suisse’s merger with UBS will not have an impact on the services provided to its Indian consumers. The bank is working on a seamless transition now.

There are worries that the acquisition could result in huge job losses in Switzerland and weaken competition in the crucial banking sector of the country, which employs about 212,000 people, or more than 5% of the total workforce.

The risk is serious for Switzerland. There will undoubtedly be overlap because the two banks together employ more than 37,000 people in the country, or around 18% of those working in the financial sector.

The Credit Suisse branch is right in front of the UBS bank in the city where I live, thus, one of the two will undoubtedly close, according to a message from Bris of IMD.

Ralph Hamers, CEO of UBS, stated during a call with Analysts that the bank would aim to Cut Expenses by 8 billion francs ($8.9 billion) year by 2027, 6 billion francs ($6.5 billion) of which would come through job reductions.

Experts predicted that UBS will continue to operate in India.

They will most probably work under the name Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS). If everything goes according to plan, it will be moved forward, said Stakeholder Empowerment Services’ J. N. Gupta.

Gaurang Shah of Geojit Financial Services added to it by stating that CS has a history of acting improperly, beginning in 1997. He wishes them the best. American regulators need to check how they operate, according to Shah.

What happened, and why USB decided to merge with Credit Suisse?

For years, Clients and investors had been losing faith in Credit Suisse (CS). Since the start of the global financial crisis in 2022, it has suffered its biggest loss.

The Emergency Loan of over $54 billion from the Swiss National Bank was not enough to stop the damage.

Although it did “create a bridge” to the weekend, allowing the rescue to be put together, Swiss officials said.

In an emergency attempt to calm the financial markets after the bankruptcy of two US banks earlier this month, Switzerland’s largest bank, UBS, has decided to purchase its struggling rival, Credit Suisse.

In exchange for their stock, which was valued at 1.86 Swiss francs, Credit Suisse stockholders will receive just 0.76 Swiss francs in UBS shares, effectively wiping them out.

Owners of other tier-one bonds, a riskier category of bank debt valued at $17 billion will be totally out of luck, according to Swiss regulators.
