Regulatory Best Execution Statement

Best Execution Statement

Statement on Best Execution Principles of Credit Suisse Asset Management (Switzerland) Ltd.

This Statement on Best Execution Principles (hereafter as “Statement”) describes the approach of Credit Suisse Asset Management (Switzerland) Ltd. (hereafter as “CSAM”) when seeking to achieve Best Execution of order placements on behalf of its client portfolios, which may be either collective investment schemes or discretionary portfolio management mandates for institutional and private clients.

This Statement, including the appendices which should be read in conjunction, summarizes the standards applied by CSAM with respect to Best Execution which are regulated in the internal CSAM Best Execution Policy and guidelines (hereafter as “Policy”). It thereby provides all relevant information on CSAM order execution and order transmission as required by applicable law and by following the standards of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2014/65/EU (hereafter as “MiFID II”).

For clients serviced by Credit Suisse legal entities other than CSAM, please note that there might be separate Best Execution Policies in place which describe the Best Execution principles of those legal entities. Please contact your local Relationship Manager for further information.
