Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse on Thursday posted a better-than-expected profit for 2014 but also announced cost-saving measures to compensate for the surge in the Swiss franc.
The number two Swiss bank said in a statement it achieved a net profit of 2.1 billion Swiss francs (2 billion euros, $2.2 billion), a 10-percent decrease compared with 2013.
Analysts interviewed by the AWP agency had predicted a profit of 1.8 billion Swiss francs.
Like other banks, Credit Suisse highlighted the negative impact of the soaring Swiss franc.
The Swiss central bank suddenly announced in mid-January that after more than three years it was lifting an enforced minimum exchange rate of 1.20 francs to the euro, allowing the Swiss currency to float.
"Based on 2014 earnings, we estimate the net adverse impact on our profit to be approximately three percent and we expect to more than offset this impact through the announced measures by end-2017," Chief Executive Officer Brady Dougan said in the statement.
The bank, which in 2011 launched a reorganisation of its activities mainly by reducing staff, plans to cut expenses by an extra 200 million Swiss francs.
Chief Financial Officer David Mathers said in a telephone conference call that the bank would bring expenses in Switzerland into line with revenue, but did not say whether job cuts were planned.
In 2014, the board of directors and the executive board accepted "voluntary reductions" in compensation, with the bank linking the cuts to a legal settlement in the United States.
Last year Credit Suisse was slapped with a fine of $2.8 billion after it pleaded guilty to having helped rich Americans evade taxes.
Credit Suisse said it will propose a dividend of 0.70 francs per share, with shareholders having the possibility to receive it through the form of new shares.
In trading at 0951 GMT, the share price surged by 7.58 percent to 21.30 Swiss francs, while the SMI index of blue chip stocks rose by 0.06 percent.
Its competitor UBS said Tuesday its net profit jumped 12.6 percent last year, but warned recent pressures due to the ballooning value of the Swiss franc and negative interest rates could hurt profits.
Last week the private bank Julius Baer announced cost-cutting measures including 200 job cuts.
