ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role of Credit Suisse's Chief Executive Oswald Gr¨mbel in increasing the earnings of the bank through a one bank strategy. As a result, in the third quarter Credit Suisse reported a 30% increase in net revenue to $12 billion; net income, at $1.4 billion, was up 42%. In December the long-running dispute between XL Insurance and CS's Winterthur Insurance was settled, which will let Grübel spin off Winterthur Insurance, likely in 2006.
