CORRECTED-Credit Suisse sells Clariden Leu Europe to Falcon private bank

(Corrects assets to withdrawals in third paragraph)

FRANKFURT, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Swiss private bank Falcon said on Thursday it will buy boutique bank Clariden Leu Europe from Credit Suisse for an undisclosed price.

Nearly one year ago, Zurich-based Credit Suisse began to integrate independently-run Clariden Leu, marking an end to a 250-year-old brand.

Clariden Leu suffered 3.4 billion Swiss francs ($3.63 billion)in second-quarter outflows, though Credit Suisse said at the time assets had stabilised after withdrawals ebbed to a low of 200 million francs in June.

($1 = 0.9378 Swiss francs)
