On October 5, 2016, the SEC filed a settled administrative proceeding against Credit Suisse AG. According to the SEC: "From at least the fourth quarter of 2011 through the fourth quarter of 2012, Credit Suisse in certain instances improperly applied its process for recognizing net new assets (“NNA”) for the wealth management business within its private bank division (“Private Bank”) in a way that was inconsistent with its disclosures. As a result, Credit Suisse’s NNA disclosures were materially misleading."
