The Swiss bank UBS, which acquired Credit Suisse in March 2023 to save it from bankruptcy, will cut 147 jobs from Credit Suisse's total workforce in Spain as part of a global plan of cuts that will affect some 35,000 workers worldwide, according to analysts' estimates.

Most of the affected workforce in Spain will be in investment banking and a smaller number in wealth management business divisions. The remaining Credit Suisse staff in Spain, where it has around 350 employees, will be transferred to UBS in the coming months. In addition, the UBS has indicated that the workforce reduction is limited to middle and back-office functions, basically with the aim of increasing efficiency, reducing costs and adjusting the organisation to the actual size of the business.
