Introduction
General
This report as of March 31, 2020 for the Group is based on the revised Circular 2016/1 “Disclosure – banks” (FINMA circular) issued by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA (FINMA) on October 31, 2019. The revised FINMA circular includes the implementation of the revised Pillar 3 disclosure requirements issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) in August and December 2018.
This report is produced and published quarterly, in accordance with FINMA requirements. The reporting frequency for each disclosure requirement is either annual, semi-annual or quarterly. This document should be read in conjunction with the Pillar 3 and regulatory disclosures – Credit Suisse Group AG 4Q19, the Credit Suisse Annual Report 2019 and the Credit Suisse Financial Report 1Q20, which includes important information on regulatory capital and risk management (specific references have been made herein to these documents) and regulatory developments and proposals.
> Refer to “Pillar 3 and regulatory disclosures – Credit Suisse Group AG 4Q19” under credit-suisse.com/regulatorydisclosures for the annual qualitative disclosures required by the FINMA circular.
The highest consolidated entity in the Group to which the FINMA circular applies is Credit Suisse Group.
These disclosures were verified and approved internally in line with our board-approved policy on disclosure controls and procedures. The level of internal control processes for these disclosures is similar to those applied to the Group’s quarterly and annual financial reports. This report has not been audited by the Group’s external auditors.
For certain prescribed table formats where line items have zero balances, such line items have not been presented.
Other regulatory disclosures
In connection with the implementation of Basel III, certain regulatory disclosures for the Group and certain of its subsidiaries are required. The Group’s Pillar 3 disclosure, regulatory disclosures, additional information on capital instruments, including the main features of regulatory capital instruments and total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC)-eligible instruments that form part of the eligible capital base and TLAC resources, G-SIB financial indicators, reconciliation requirements, leverage ratios and certain liquidity disclosures as well as regulatory disclosures for subsidiaries can be found on our website.
> Refer to credit-suisse.com/regulatorydisclosures for additional information.
COVID-19 and related regulatory measures
The Swiss government, the Swiss National Bank and FINMA have taken various measures to mitigate the consequences for the economy and the financial system. Governments and regulators in other jurisdictions where we have operations have also taken a number of emergency and temporary measures to address the financial and economic pressures arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In March 2020, FINMA announced the temporary exclusion of central bank reserves from leverage ratio calculations (FINMA Guidance 02/2020, 03/2020 and 06/2020). This temporary measure was immediately effective and will continue to apply until January 1, 2021. The exclusion applies to deposits with all central banks globally, and thus not only to deposits with the Swiss National Bank. For banks whose shareholders approved dividends or other similar distributions relating to 2019 after March 25, 2020, or who plan to seek such shareholder approval, the capital relief will be reduced by an amount equal to the dividend distributions.
As a result of the abrupt increase in market volatility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, financial institutions that apply a model approach to market risk are recording an increased number of backtesting exceptions. Such an exception occurs if the loss incurred on a single day is greater than the loss indicated by the model. Backtesting exceptions exceeding a certain number lead to an immediate increase to the minimum capital requirements for market risk. Most exceptions today are not due to shortcomings of the model, however, but due to the abrupt increase in volatility. To mitigate these volatility change-related effects, FINMA in April 2020 announced a temporary exemption concerning backtesting results in the model approach to market risk under which the capital requirements for market risk until July 1, 2020 will be frozen at the level of February 1, 2020 (FINMA Guidance 04/2020). In May 2020, FINMA announced that this relief can continue post July 1, 2020, if specifically approved by FINMA (FINMA Guidance 06/2020).

Risk-weighted assets
Overview
With the adoption of the revised FINMA circular, risk-weighted assets (RWA) presented in this report are based on the Swiss capital requirements.
> Refer to “Swiss requirements” (pages 55 to 56) in II – Treasury, risk, balance sheet and off-balance sheet –Capital management – in the Credit Suisse Financial Report 1Q20 for further information on Swiss capital requirements.
The following table provides an overview of total Swiss RWA forming the denominator of the risk-based capital requirements.
RWA of CHF 301.2 billion as of the end of 1Q20 increased 3% compared to the end of 4Q19, primarily driven by movements in risk levels in credit risk and methodology and policy changes in credit risk. These increases were partially offset by decreases related to internal model and parameter updates, primarily related to operational risk, and a negative foreign exchange impact.
RWA flow statements for credit risk, counterparty credit risk (CCR) and market risk are presented below.
> Refer to “Risk-weighted assets” (pages 58 to 59) in II – Treasury, risk, balance sheet and off-balance sheet – Capital Management in the Credit Suisse Financial Report 1Q20 for further information on movements in risk-weighted assets in 1Q20.

Risk-weighted assets flow statements
Credit risk and counterparty credit risk
The following table presents the definitions of the RWA flow statements components for credit risk and CCR.
Definition of risk-weighted assets movement components related to credit risk and CCR
Description Definition
Asset size    Represents changes on the portfolio size arising in the ordinary course of business (including
new businesses). Asset size also includes movements arising from the application of the
comprehensive approach with regard to the treatment of financial collateral
Asset quality/credit quality of counterparties  Represents changes in average risk weighting across credit risk classes
Model and parameter updates   Represents movements arising from internally driven or externally mandated updates to models
and recalibrations of model parameters specific only to Credit Suisse
Methodology and policy changes    Represents movements arising from externally mandated regulatory methodology and policy
changes to accounting and exposure classification and treatment policies not specific only
to Credit Suisse
Acquisitions and disposals  Represents changes in book sizes due to acquisitions and disposals of entities
Foreign exchange impact  Represents changes in exchange rates of the transaction currencies compared to the Swiss franc
Other  Represents changes that cannot be attributed to any other category

Model and parameter updates (3,148)
Foreign exchange impact (1,479)
Risk-weighted assets at end of period  120,427
Includes RWA related to the A-IRB approach and supervisory slotting approach.
Credit risk RWA under IRB increased CHF 1.0 billion to CHF 120.4 billion as of the end of 1Q20 compared to CHF 119.5 billion as of the end of 4Q19, primarily driven by increases related to movements in risk levels, mainly attributable to asset size, partially offset by decreases related to model and parameter updates and a negative foreign exchange impact.
The increase in risk levels attributable to asset size was mainly driven by increases in lending risk exposures. The decrease in model and parameter updates primarily reflected the move of particular exposures from the IRB to the standardized approach. The RWA impact from this model change was already reflected in prior periods.
Counterparty credit risk RWA movements

CCR RWA under IMM increased CHF 3.2 billion to CHF 20.7 billion as of the end of 1Q20 compared to CHF 17.5 billion as of the end of 4Q19, primarily driven by increases relating to movements in risk levels, mainly attributable to asset size, and increases related to methodology and policy changes.
The increase in risk levels attributable to asset size was mainly driven by the pro-cyclical effects of higher market volatility in the second half of the quarter, primarily in security financing exposures. The movement in methodology and policy changes reflected the phase-in of certain Basel III revisions for counterparty credit risk.
