The article presents an interview of Rainer R. Gut, the chairman of prestigious Credit Suisse. In conversation, he displays not the guarded reticence too often ascribed to Swiss bankers but rather a candid openness. In terms of the U.S. period, he learned to look at things a little differently, not to take for granted that business flows ones own way. According to him, the big difference between U.S. and Europe lies in that the U.S. is constantly adapting to new things. Whereas in Europe, there is tendency to accept the proven traditional things. He does not think that European issuers and investors are as concerned about short term results as in the U.S. because there is no obligation to report quarterly.
