Credit Suisse CS 4.79%▲ Group AG named Ulrich Körner as its next chief executive and charged him to lead a fresh effort to stabilize the bank after financial losses and scandals.

The troubled Swiss bank has been trying to repair its business managing rich people’s wealth and operating a Wall Street investment bank. On Wednesday, it launched a new strategic review to pare back the investment bank further and slash its overall costs.

Mr. Körner joined Credit Suisse in March 2021 to head its asset management business. He held top jobs at rival UBS Group AG for around 11 years where he helped manage the bank’s post-financial crisis rebuilding. He was with Credit Suisse before that.
