Credit Suisse: integration, not originality, is path to recovery

In its second quarter 2006 results, Credit Suisse said group profits more than doubled compared to the prior-year period. Yet while investors were understandably disappointed by a decline in trading revenues, they should wait to see whether the company's long term transition to a leaner, fitter bank can give it the impetus to catch rivals such as UBS.
