UBS stepping in to save Credit Suisse with a $3.2-billion acquisition has provided the beleaguered Swiss bank’s India employees a glimmer of hope. The surprise deal — engineered by the Swiss government — has triggered optimism of fewer job losses at Credit Suisse’s India unit and better synergies at key verticals, such as wealth management and investment banking.
