ZURICH (Reuters) – Credit Suisse (SIX:) Chairman Antonio Horta-Osorio has bought another 1 million Swiss francs ($1.1 million) worth of shares in the group as he tries to restore order to Switzerland’s second-biggest bank.
Regulatory filings showed a member of the bank’s board of directors had purchased the shares on Friday. A spokesperson confirmed it was Horta-Osorio.
In May, Horta-Osorio had bought 1.1 million Swiss francs worth of shares in the group.
The former Lloyds (LON:) chief executive is looking at the bank’s risk management and culture in the wake of two major crises as well as reviewing the bank’s strategic options.
His purchase comes a day after a review found a “lackadaisical” attitude towards risk and “a lack of accountability” were to blame for its $5.5 billion loss on investment fund Archegos as the bank reported a near 80% fall in second-quarter profit.
