Credit Suisse’s new Investment Suitability Tool assists Asset Managers with a structured, system-supported framework to assess Suitability & Appropriateness according to MiFID requirements.

Three steps to find a suitable investment

  • Enter an individual investor profile. After that, the profile can be easily managed. The documentation meets the regulatory requirements for recording and monitoring.
  • Perform the evaluation and document the client's suitability and appropriateness of the investment proposals based on the risk budget and the client's investment objectives. Is the planned investment suitable? Does the client have an adequate level of knowledge? Can he bear the financial risk? Do the risks of the investment proposal match the client's risk capacity and tolerance?
  • Create regulatory documentation and customize it with your own logo. Clients will always know where they stand and you will also be complying with claims for increased transparency.

Whether you handle advisory or discretionary mandates, using the Investment Suitability Tool saves you time and reduces administrative effort. For more information, please contact our experts directly or get in touch with your relationship manager.
