Credit Suisse to decide on capital raising 'as soon as possible'

HONG KONG, March 28 (Reuters) - Credit Suisse will

make a decision on its capital raising plans "as soon as

possible," its chief executive said on Tuesday, without giving

specific details on the timing or the type of fund-raising.

Thiam, who joined Credit Suisse from British insurer

Prudential in mid 2015, gave the comments at a news conference

in Hong Kong, where he was present for an investment conference.
