Credit Suisse is the latest big bank to pay for its role in the financial crisis.
The Swiss bank will pay $885 million to settle two lawsuits with the Federal Housing Finance Authority (FHFA) over $16.6 billion of mortgage-backed securities it sold between 2005 and 2007.
Credit Suisse is one of 18 banks and financial institutions sued in 2011 by the agency, which accused them of selling risky mortgage investments to backers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
The settlement with Credit Suisse announced Friday is the ninth related to those lawsuits. Morgan Stanley(MS) agreed to pay $1.25 billion in February and Deutsche Bank (DB)reached a $1.9 billion settlement in December. Societe Generale agreed to pay $122 million to the FHFA two weeks ago.
