Annual General Meeting of Credit Suisse Group

All Proposals of the Board of Directors Approved

Zurich, May 4, 2007 At Credit Suisse Group’s Annual General Meeting today in Zurich, shareholders approved all of the proposals put forward by the Board of Directors. Oswald J. Grübel, who stepped down as CEO of Credit Suisse Group at the meeting, was thanked by Walter B. Kielholz, Chairman of the Board of Directors, for his significant contribution to the Group over almost 40 years.

The shareholders approved the proposed dividend of CHF 2.24 per share for the financial year 2006 and a par value reduction of CHF 0.46 per share as well as a share buy-back program of up to CHF 8 billion that will start on May 9, 2007 and run for a maximum of three years. The dividend will be paid on May 10, 2007, and the par value reduction on July 18, 2007.

Furthermore, the AGM re-elected the four Board Directors standing for re-election for a further period of three years: Noreen Doyle (with 98.62% of the shareholders’ votes represented), Aziz R.D. Syriani (93.18%), David W. Syz (99.14%) and Peter F. Weibel (99.12%).

In his speech, Walter B. Kielholz, Chairman of the Board of Directors, looked back on a successful anniversary year and a record result for Credit Suisse. “2006 was a memorable year for Credit Suisse; the bank not only celebrated its 150th anniversary, but also achieved the best financial result in its history. Furthermore, it launched the new, integrated business model, thereby laying the foundations for Credit Suisse’s future growth and long-term success.” In addition, Walter B. Kielholz acknowledged the achievements of the retiring CEO, Oswald J. Grübel, and introduced the new CEO, Brady W. Dougan, who will assume his new role on May 5, 2007. “Oswald Grübel has made an outstanding contribution to the success of Credit Suisse. He played a decisive role in the substantial increase in Credit Suisse’s profitability and created considerable value for the company’s shareholders. I am pleased that we have been able to appoint as his successor Brady Dougan, a proven leader with international banking experience from within the bank. This guarantees that Credit Suisse will be in a position to continue to implement its clearly defined, successful strategy under its new leadership.”

This press release contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In addition, in the future we, and others on our behalf, may make statements that constitute forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, statements relating to the following:

We do not intend to update these forward-looking statements except as may be required by applicable securities laws.

By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and risks exist that predictions, forecasts, projections and other outcomes described or implied in forward-looking statements will not be achieved. We caution you that a number of important factors could cause results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors include:

—            The ability of counterparties to meet their obligations to us;

—            The effects of, and changes in, fiscal, monetary, trade and tax policies, and currency fluctuations;

—            Political and social developments, including war, civil unrest or terrorist activity;

—            The possibility of foreign exchange controls, expropriation, nationalization or confiscation of assets in countries in which we conduct our          operations;

—            Operational factors such as systems failure, human error, or the failure to implement procedures properly;

—            Actions taken by regulators with respect to our business and practices in one or more of the countries in which we     conduct our                 operations;



—            The effects of changes in laws, regulations or accounting policies or practices;

—            Competition in geographic and business areas in which we conduct our operations;

—            The ability to retain and recruit qualified personnel;

—            The ability to maintain our reputation and promote our brand;

—            Technological changes;

—            The timely development and acceptance of our new products and services and the perceived overall value of these products and                 services by users;

—            Acquisitions, including the ability to integrate acquired businesses successfully, and divestitures, including the ability to sell non-core        assets;

—            The adverse resolution of litigation and other contingencies; and

—            Our success at managing the risks involved in the foregoing.

We caution you that the foregoing list of important factors is not exclusive. When evaluating forward-looking statements, you should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and events, as well as the information set forth in our Form 20-F Item 3 - Key Information - Risk factors.
