LONDON, Oct 3 (Reuters) – The cost of insuring exposure to debt issued by Swiss lender UBS (UBSG.S) rose to a decade high on Monday after peer Credit Suisse was caught in the market spotlight amid concerns about its ability to revamp its business and bolster its capital.

UBS five-year credit default swaps (CDS) rose 12 basis points from Friday’s close to 118 bps, its highest level since 2013, data from S&P Global Market Intelligence showed.

Credit Suisse (CSGN.S) CDS last stood at 335 bps, well above Friday’s close of 250 bps but below the 355 bps hit earlier on Monday.
