1 Credit Suisse Asset Headline Ideas 2015 Dividends An Important Source of Income When Interest Rates Are Low For qualified investors only

2 Dividends An Important Source of Income When Interest Rates Are Low Investors face major challenges under current conditions, with interest rates at historically low levels and persistently low returns on many assets. Those looking for returns should continue to invest in equities yielding high dividends, which still offer attractive prospects for income under current conditions. In Search of Returns: Focusing on High Dividend Stocks The start of the year was marked by a string of monetary events and, to some extent, increased market volatility. Since the start of the year, yields on EUR- and CHFdenominated government bonds have slid into negative territory in most maturities. Investors are confronted with an increasingly difficult fixed-income environment. The gradual disappearance of current interest income presents even greater challenges for investors focused on returns. What should be the focus for investors seeking to achieve their target returns under the present conditions? In our opinion, there are two options on the equity markets that offer good prospects for attractive income flows. The related strategies entail less risk exposure than the equity market as a whole. They are: 01 Dividend Strategies Under the present conditions of low interest rates, equities paying high dividends continue to represent a good source of income. At present, global dividend strategies can achieve a dividend yield of around 3.5% to 4.5%. 02 Covered Call Strategies Covered call strategies can further increase the total return on an equity portfolio. Credit Suisse s solutions seek a distribution of 8% per year, to be paid quarterly. The target return is not a projection, prediction or guarantee of future performance. No assurance can be given that the target return will be achieved.

3 01 Dividend Strategies Dividend yields continue to exceed the yields on government and corporate bonds. Still room for dividend increases Dividend payout ratio for MSCI World Index in % As soon as the central banks start to tighten their monetary policy, we expect the difference in yields between government bonds and equities to narrow, but dividends should still remain more attractive in the longer term. In historical terms, distribution levels are quite low, and companies are holding large amounts of cash, so there is potential for further dividend increases In the long term, dividend strategies offer investors higher overall returns than the wider equity market, with historically lower price volatility.

6 02 Covered Call Strategies Under the present conditions of ultralow interest rates, covered call strategies offer additional income potential through the sale of call options on shares. A covered call strategy is normally exposed to lower volatility than a traditional equity portfolio due to the higher income. When equity markets are falling, trading sideways or rising slightly, these strategies achieve a higher overall return than a conventional equity portfolio. Stable earnings sources in a low interest rate environment Example: the customer receives a premium of 4% for writing a threemonth call option on a stock with a strike price of 102% of the stock price when the call option is sold. 1 Change in stock price Negative Neutral Positive 2 Positive Quarterly change in stock price 10% 0% 6% 10% Premiums received from sale 4% 4% 4% 4% of call option Payment to purchaser of the call 0% 0% 4% 8% option at the end of the term Covered call performance 6% 4% 6% 6% Outperformance of covered call compared with simple stock purchase 4% 4% 0% 4% What Is a Covered Call? With a covered call, an investor sells call options on a security they hold. In exchange they receive from the buyer of the options a fixed premium irrespective of whether the price of the security rises or falls. In return the investor undertakes to sell the underlying at a fixed price (strike price) if the market price of the underlying goes above this threshold amount. The seller of call options receives a fixed options premium, but the upside potential is capped. 1 Breakeven Point: If the stock is lower on expiry, the investor of a covered call receives limited protection in the amount of the option premium. The breakeven point is reached if the fall in the share price corresponds exactly to the option premium received (V = V* P). 2 Stable stock price: If the stock is unchanged on expiry (V = V*), the profit on a covered call corresponds to the option premium received. 3 Maximum profit: If the stock trades at the strike price on expiry (V = S) the maximum possible profit of a covered call is reached. It comprises the option premium received (P) plus the price increase (S V*). 4 Both strategies perform equally well: If the stock price corresponds exactly to the strike price plus the option premium (V = S + P), both strategies perform well. If the stock price exceeds this threshold, a simple stock purchase is more advantageous than a covered call. Payout of a covered call compared with the underlying Profit Loss 0 Covered call achieves negative performance Area indicates the financial advantage of a simple stock purchase compared with a covered call V* P 1 Underlying 2 3 V* S Covered call performs better than the underlying Covered call achieves positive performance 4 S + P Covered call Area indicates the financial advantage of a covered call compared with a simple stock purchase price Covered call performs worse than the underlying V*: Original stock price upon sale of the call options V: Stock price on expiry of the call options (see examples 1 to 4) S: Strike price P: Option premium from the sale of the call options 1 This example assumes no dividends are paid during the term of the option and the strike price is higher at the start of the term than the stock price (i.e. the call option is out of the money). 2 Stock price increase is set so that both strategies perform equally well (covered call versus simple stock purchase). 6/8 Asset
