NEW YORK, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Credit Suisse Asset Management said on Tuesday that it will buy a minority stake in U.S. hedge fund York Capital Management.
Credit Suisse (CSGN.VX) will pay an initial $425 million for a non-controlling stake in York, according to the bank.
Credit Suisse will also pay more money to York over the next five years based on York's financial performance as well as retention payments for York executives.
