The construction of the Index originally used 3-month USD LIBOR. In connection with the discontinuation of such rate, Credit Suisse International ratified amendments to the index methodology (the customer notice can be found here). Following January 3, 2022, the Index methodology will use, as a replacement to 3-month USD LIBOR, the sum of (i) the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) and (ii) a spread that will progress from 0.10% to 0.26% through June 30, 2023. Following July 3, 2023, the Index methodology will use the sum of (i) SOFR and (ii) a spread of 0.26%.
The Credit Suisse Balanced Trend 5% Index includes global components across asset classes to provide diversification and to help reduce portfolio risk.
