ZURICH - Credit Suisse Group has not been approached by any Saudi sovereign wealth funds about becoming investors, the Swiss bank said on Tuesday in response to a Financial Times column suggesting just such a possibility.

"While we would welcome all potential new shareholders, to date we have not been in contact with any sovereign wealth funds in Saudi Arabia," a bank spokesman said.
