Credit Suisse Multialternative Strategy Fund

The fund seeks to approximate the aggregate returns, before fees and expenses, of the universe of hedge funds, as represented by the Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index (the “CS Hedge Fund Index”), using liquid investments. The CS Hedge Fund Index is a widely recognized asset-weighted benchmark that measures hedge fund performance. The index used as representative of hedge funds may be changed without shareholder approval. The Fund will invest in a broad range of instruments, including but not limited to, futures, commodities, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), options, currencies and others. The Fund does not invest in hedge funds.


Strategy & Investment Approach

The fund seeks to achieve total return consistent with the return and risk patterns of a diversified universe of hedge funds.


For investors seeking to enhance the efficiency of their portfolios, the Credit Suisse Multialternative Strategy Fund may potentially provide a liquid, transparent and broadly diversified alternative for accessing the risk and return characteristics of hedge funds.


Academic research has demonstrated that common market components are by far the largest driver of aggregate hedge fund returns, and that it is possible to gain exposure to these components through liquid securities. The Fund’s managers believe that exposure to these liquid components may allow investors to create a portfolio with risk/return characteristics comparable to an index of hedge funds.
