Swiss financial regulator FINMA and the country’s central bank said Wednesday that the Swiss National Bank would provide liquidity to Credit Suisse “if necessary.”

Both institutions stated in a joint statement that Credit Suisse “meets the capital and liquidity requirements imposed on systemically important banks.”

The comments come after the bank’s shares plunged more than 30% on Wednesday and after months of turmoil. Governments and at least one bank were pressuring Switzerland to act, people familiar with the matter said.
