BlackRock this week finalized its buy of Credit Suisse's exchange traded funds business, in a move that makes BlackRock's iShares platform the largest in the region. The combined firm will operate under the iShares name and all 58 of Credit Suisse's ETFs will be re-branded as iShares ETFs on the exchanges where they are listed.

iShares now manages some $8.1 billion across equities, fixed income and gold ETFs in Switzerland at the end of May.
