Credit Suisse's managing director list: What you need to know

It's happened. Credit Suisse has appointed 208 new managing directors, a massive 58 more MDs than it promoted in 2020. 

The full list of new names is below. 64 are in the Americas; 57 are in Switzerland; just 38 are in EMEA and 49 are in APAC. Their average age is 43, and 79 of them are millennials (aged 40 or below). On average, they've worked at Credit Suisse for 12 years each. 27% are women (vs. 34% at Citi), the highest proportion in six years. 

The list is significant because this year is important for managing directors at Credit Suisse. The bank is widely expected to cut bonuses after a difficult year of losses relating to both Archegos and Greensill. Promoting people to managing director is one way of persuading them to stick around.

Accordingly, the list below contains people in some of Credit Suisse's most valuable areas, many of which have been prone to poaching in 2021. - There are several industrials bankers (Karl Montfort, Christopher Siska, Macon Thompson, Alex Wong). There are multiple people in leveraged finance (Stephen Brinkmann, Peter Decareau, Mikhail Faybusovich, Julia Frank, Brian Sullivan, Mithil Vengurlekar.) 

Notably, though, the list contains very few people in the London global markets business or indeed London at all. - By our reckoning, only 29 people on the list are in London. Fewer than 10 are in global markets in Canary Wharf. 

If you're at Credit Suisse, this is surely saying something. So too is the fact that many of this year's promotions are in risk, compliance and controls. The influence of chairman Antonio Horta-Osorio is clear in the promotion of Caroline Möhrle Gloor - the head of the chairman's office and corporate secretary.
