Workers light cigarettes outside the U.K. headquarters of Credit Suisse Group AG at the Canary Wharf business and shopping district in London, U.K.Credit Suisse Group AG’s biggest shareholder on Tuesday dismissed a proposal by a small Swiss activist investor to break up the country’s second-largest bank, saying the current strategy is beginning to pay off.
On its website, the firm says its only investing in Europe, where it “understands the cultural subtleties” and looks for “local alpha” producing stocks. One of its funds, RBR European Long Short, has returned an average of 9.6 percent since inception in 2003, according to an investor update. That fund was up 15 percent through August this year, after losing 11 percent in 2016. In the update, Bohli wrote that Credit Suisse was a “misunderstood jewel” with an undervalued wealth-management business.
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is expanding its trading activities in Switzerland, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. The U.S. investment bank is upgrading its Swiss trading unit, housed under Goldman Sachs International, from a representative office into a branch, the person said, asking not to be identified as the plans aren’t public. The move is subject to approval from Finma, the Swiss financial regulator.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
