BlackRock has dismissed a report that it is preparing a takeover bid for troubled Swiss lender Credit Suisse.

“BlackRock is not participating in any plans to acquire all or part of Credit Suisse and has no interest in doing so,” a company spokesperson told CNBC on Saturday morning.

It comes after the Financial Times reported that the US asset manager was working on a bid to buy the bank, citing people familiar with the situation.

UBS has also been touted as a potential buyer, with the FT reporting on Friday that it is in talks to take over all or part of Credit Suisse, after a tough week for the bank that saw its share price plummet.

This is a developing story and will be updated soon.
