Credit Suisse Balanced Trend Index: The Value of Volatility Control

The participation rate for our Credit Suisse strategy did not change!

In a time when the marketplace seems unpredictable and volatile, your clients may be looking for a smoother ride. Balanced Trend is a custom index designed to rebalance assets when market conditions fluctuate and it seeks to deliver higher value in a volatile market. By smoothing out the ups and downs, it aims to offer your clients more predictable interest crediting potential in the long term.
