Saudi National Bank says panic over Credit Suisse is unwarranted

The chairman of Credit Suisse’s largest shareholder, Saudi National Bank, told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble that the recent market turmoil in the banking sector is “isolated” and stems from “a bit of panic.”

“If you look at how the whole banking sector has fallen, unfortunately, a lot of people were just looking for excuses … there’s panic, a little bit of panic,” Ammar Al Khudairy said on CNBC’s “Capital Connection.”

He added that Credit Suisse has not asked the Saudi National Bank for financial assistance.

“There have been no discussions with Credit Suisse about providing assistance,” he said. “I don’t know where the word ‘help’ came from, there have been no discussions since October,” he said.

His comments come after Credit Suisse announced it will borrow up to 50 billion Swiss francs ($53.68 billion) from the Swiss National Bank to bolster liquidity and investor confidence after the stock plunged on Wednesday.
