Retrospective: Accelerated growth product linked to S&P 500

Credit Suisse issued an accelerated growth product linked to the S&P 500 index in March 2009 offering five times index growth at maturity subject to a cap on returns of 20%. Therefore the maximum return is achieved if the index rises by only 4% over the product term.
