Credit Suisse will have to wait a little longer to get its hands on Fortis Bank Nederland's prime brokerage unit.
The sale of Prime Fund Solutions, which was agreed to in May, had been expected to close by the end of this year. But now the deal will not be finalized until the first quarter, according to ABN Amro, which is merging with the nationalized Fortis.

Terms of that deal have not been disclosed. PFS has some 600 employees in 13 offices around the world.
