Great work everyone and great news: the fun isn't over yet.

Credit Suisse Group AG Chief Executive Officer Tidjane Thiam said he’s confident in delivering planned cost cuts this year after a tumultuous first quarter sparked a second quarterly loss...Thiam, 53, in March unveiled a second restructuring round, deepening cost cuts and eliminating thousands of jobs to focus on wealth management. While the securities unit reported a loss in the first quarter, hurt by writedowns on high-risk securities, Credit Suisse maintained its key capital ratio, with the CEO signaling it may exceed targets for gross cost savings this year.
