Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse Group AG reported Wednesday that its net loss attributable to shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2017 narrowed to CHF2.13 billion or CHF0.83 per share from CHF2.62 billion or CHF1.20 per share in the fourth-quarter of 2016.

It reported a net loss of 983 million Swiss francs ($1.05 billion) for the year and said that it paid 2.74 billion Swiss francs in income tax expenses, primarily related to the re-assessment of deferred taxes resulting from the US tax changes.

Zurich-based Credit Suisse reported a full-year net loss of SFr983m (£759m), mainly due to one-off tax charges, previously stated at SFr2.741bn, related to U.S. tax reforms.

That's a welcome change from the fourth quarter, when revenue from fixed-income trading fell 4.7 percent at Credit Suisse, while equities trading slumped 22 percent.

Yet many of Credit Suisse's markets businesses went on to struggle throughout 2017 as volatility declined.

The bank said net new assets in its key wealth management division jumped 27 percent a year ago to 37.2 billion francs.

The bank proposed a 2017 dividend of 0.25 Swiss francs per share.
