General Information

Credit Suisse (Lux) Fixed Maturity Bond Fund 2020 S-1

Combining the Best Attributes of Bonds and Funds

The fund’s objective is to achieve an attractive yield pickup by investing mainly in USD-denominated corporate bonds with a maximum maturity on September 30, 2020. It will be actively managed, following a global approach to increase the opportunity set and expand the investment universe. This will allow the portfolio management team to more effectively construct a “best” bonds portfolio.

In September 2020, when the fund matures, investors will be repaid their share of its net asset value. The fund shows a payout structure that is similar to that of a single bond investment but with additional diversification benefits. The total return at maturity profits from higher interest rates and is negatively impacted by lower interest rates. However, the portfolio profits today from higher locked-in rates in a continued low yield environment.

Key characteristics

  • Repayment of capital, (subject to default risk of invested bonds)
  • Attractive gross indicative yield-to-maturity of 3.0% to 3,5%, depending on market conditions1
  • Regular income stream over a fixed time horizon
  • Target of semi-annual payouts of 2% p.a. for the USD share class
  • A well-diversified global portfolio including developed and emerging market debt and investment grade and non-investment
  • Holdings with an average investment grade credit rating
  • Professional management, active monitoring and risk management
  • Decreasing interest rate and spread risk over time

1Assuming reinvestment rate is equal to yield-to-maturity. The final portfolio value depends on number of defaults and reinvestment rate over the lifetime of the fund. Target yield or payout is not a projection, prediction or guarantee for future performance, and there is no certainty that the target yield or payout will be reached. The shown yield-to-maturity is calculated as of 30.06.2016 and does not take into account costs, changes in the portfolio, market fluctuations and potential defaults. The yield to maturity is an indication only and is subject to change.


  • Bonds carry the risk of default; if the issuer defaults or goes into liquidation, investors may lose some or all of their invested capital
  • The investments are subject to market fluctuations
  • There is no guarantee for the level of coupon payments or the value of the investments at maturity or at any other time

There are no projection, prediction or guarantee for future performance and there is no certainty that the target return will be reached.
