Key features and benefits

Capital growth potential – You have the potential to receive capital growth based on the price performance of a portfolio of Australian equities, a combined portfolio of Australian resource equities and the Hang Seng China Enterprise Index, or the S&P/ASX 200 Index.Potential for accelerated growth – Investment exposure of up to 150% (dependent upon the volatility risk reduction feature).Capital Protection – Class C provides investors with the added guarantee of a further 21% at the end of the term.

The opportunity to borrow up to 121% of the investment amount – You can borrow to invest in Credit Suisse Performance Plus Series. (100% Class A&B, 121% Class C)

Unlock existing cash locked CPPI investments – Class C units allow investors the opportunity to borrow an additional 21% of the investment amount that can be used to pay back penalties in existing cash locked CPPI structures.

Volatility Risk Reduction Strategy – During periods of positive returns, volatility tends to be low
and stable, during periods of negative returns, volatility tends to be high as investors shy away from risk. Credit Suisse’s volatility overlay reduces and increases exposure to the underlying investments (between 25% and 150%) as volatility falls and rises, potentially enhancing returns and reducing downside risk.
