The Credit Suisse ESG Macro 5 Index is a fully rules-based index that offers innovative exposure to multiple asset classes with a focus on environment, social and governance (ESG) standards. In an attempt to generate consistent returns over time, the Index implements a strategy that combines an ESG equity component and a macro component (comprised of sub-strategies across fixed income, commodities and currencies components), complemented by a daily risk control mechanism.
