SNB has no knowledge of any Credit Suisse-UBS merger - Jordan

ZURICH, Sept 24 (Reuters) - The Swiss National Bank is not aware of a possible merger between giant banks UBS and Credit Suisse, SNB Chairman Thomas Jordan said on Thursday.

Jordan declined to comment on reports of a potential tie-up or the impact on the stability of the Swiss financial system if such a mega-merger were to materialise.

“We do not have any..knowledge about that so I cannot also answer,” Jordan told reporters in response to a question.

“These are rumours and we do not hear or react to any of these rumours,” Jordan said after the central bank kept its expansive monetary policy in place. (Reporting by John Revill; Editing by Michael Shields)
