Credit Suisse has announced a series of appointments this Monday. Namely, the Swiss bank has revealed that James L. Amine has decided to step down from his role as the CEO of Investment Banking and Capital Markets (IBCM) and from the Group Executive Board.

Amine has been leading the IBCM unit for more than a decade. The company’s investment bank unit includes its global market operations. Through this unit, the firm offers global securities sales, trading and Execution , prime brokerage, and comprehensive investment research.

However, Amine is moving away from the position to take on a newly created role at Credit Suisse: head of Private Credit Opportunities, based in New York, and will report to Eric Varvel.

The aim of this new position is to build up the firm’s asset management unit and strategy. In particular, the Swiss bank is planning to expand its alternative asset management product offering and focus on directly sourced private credit opportunities, the statement said.
