January 25, 2021

The Credit Suisse (Lux) Thematic Opportunities Equity Fund offers a diversified portfolio focusing on small- and mid-cap companies whose innovative products and services are disrupting industries and challenging traditional leaders. The fund invests directly in the underlying stocks of the Credit Suisse Asset Management Thematic Equity strategies, and gives consideration to the ESG criteria defined under the Credit Suisse Sustainable Investing Framework.1

The subscription period will run from February 1 until February 25, 2021, when the fund will be launched.

Angus Muirhead, Head of Thematic Equities at Credit Suisse Asset Management, emphasized the fund’s appeal to investors seeking exposure to a broad spectrum of impactful themes: “All of our high-conviction themes are based on robust long-term secular growth trends. Our deep-dive research and close contact with experts from industry and academia allow us to identify attractive investment opportunities, while the portfolio’s diversity across stocks, sectors, and countries should also reduce volatility.”

1 ESG stands for environmental (E), social (S), and governance (G). More information is available at For further information about the ESG investment criteria, please visit
