Publicly available records indicate that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors in Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE:CS) in connection to alleged violations of securities laws by CS. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in speaking to investors who have complaints regarding investments made in Credit Suisse Group AG from March 20, 2015 until February 3, 2016.
The class action complaint specifically alleges that during the period in question, CS might have provided false and/or misleading material information, and/or failed to disclose adverse material information, chiefly: that the company regularly ignored its risk procedures and control systems; that the company was contravening these protocols by gathering billions of dollars’ worth of high-risk and illiquid securities; and that consequently the company’s statements to the public during the relevant period about operations and business were false and misleading. The complaint alleges that when true facts emerged, investors in CS suffered losses.
