The Swiss bank's decline didn't start this year - since 2019 it has been rocked with scandals and bad investments that has brought the share price down by over 90%. Here are some of the biggest ones, culminating in UBS putting it out of its misery earlier this month.

How do we find the actual source of your data? "Bloomberg" and "Credit Suisse" does not tell us anything of where to go to find out more, to check details on the dataset like its granularity, collection, and any adjustments, or to verify or cross-check your information.

Also, your newsletter link does not link to any actual issue -- it just links to your homepage.

Awesome graph! May I use this for a school presentation? I was literally searching for a graph like yours with no success and then boom… this pops up on my feed

Personally , I’d avoid any bank catering to money laundering and crony investing.

Chairman forced to resign because of Covid rules??

What did he do? Accidentally removed his mask during a meeting?

I looked it up. Wikipedia says there were 2.

The first was flying out of Switzerland after a 3-day stay at a time when the country had mandatory 10-day quarantine.

The second was attending Wimbledon at a time where UK Covid rules required him to be in quarantine.

I think the spiciest one though is some unspecified “transgressions in his personal life” that he admitted to in 2016 and sent an email apologizing for to 75,000 employees.

It sounds like they used COVID as a cover for what really was fireable.

An article appeared in the FT before his dismissal reporting "rumors" that the chairman was the only intelligent and competent person in the company, and that the CEO especially had no formal education in finance (which wasn't true). I think everybody saw this as a move by the chairman to create public pressure on the CEO and to play office politics. So the bank got rid of him.

They were crooks and criminals is what went wrong—the Swiss banking industry is a sordid affair.
