= 7.50%
Redemption Quantity = $1,000 × (1 + Safety Efficiency Issue)
= $1,000 × 1.075
= $1,075

Chosen Danger Concerns

 

An funding within the
securities includes important dangers. This part describes materials dangers referring to an funding within the securities. These dangers
are defined in additional element within the “Danger Components” part of any accompanying product complement.

 

Dangers Referring to the Securities Typically

 

YOUR INVESTMENT IN THE SECURITIES MAY RESULT IN A LOSS
If the Ultimate Degree of the Lowest Performing Underlying is lower than its Buffer Degree, you’ll lose 1% of your principal for every
1% decline from its Preliminary Degree to its Ultimate Degree past its Buffer Degree. You possibly can lose as much as $900 per $1,000 principal quantity of
securities. Any fee on the securities is topic to our potential to pay our obligations as they change into due.

 

THE SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO THE CREDIT RISK OF CREDIT
SUISSE

 

Buyers are depending on our potential to pay all quantities
due on the securities and, subsequently, if we had been to default on our obligations, you might not obtain any quantities owed to you beneath the
securities. As well as, any decline in our credit score rankings, any antagonistic adjustments available in the market’s view of our creditworthiness or
any enhance in our credit score spreads is prone to adversely have an effect on the worth of the securities previous to maturity.

 

REGARDLESS OF THE AMOUNT OF ANY PAYMENT YOU RECEIVE
ON THE SECURITIES, YOUR ACTUAL YIELD MAY BE DIFFERENT IN REAL VALUE TERMS

 

Inflation might trigger the actual worth of any fee you obtain
on the securities to be much less at maturity than it’s on the time you make investments. An funding within the securities additionally represents a forgone
alternative to put money into another asset that generates the next actual return. You need to rigorously take into account whether or not an funding
that will lead to a return that’s decrease than the return on different investments is acceptable for you.

 

THE SECURITIES DO NOT PAY INTEREST

 

We won’t pay curiosity on the securities. You could obtain
much less at maturity than you could possibly have earned on abnormal interest-bearing debt securities with comparable maturities, together with different of our
debt securities, because the Redemption Quantity relies on the efficiency of the Lowest Performing Underlying. As a result of the Redemption Quantity
could also be lower than the quantity initially invested within the securities, the return on the securities (the efficient yield to maturity) might
be adverse. Even whether it is optimistic, the return payable on every safety might not be sufficient to compensate you for any loss in worth due
to inflation and different components referring to the worth of cash over time.

 

LIMITED APPRECIATION POTENTIAL

 

If the Ultimate Degree of the Lowest Performing Underlying
is bigger than its Preliminary Degree, for every $1,000 principal quantity of securities, you’ll obtain at maturity $1,000 multiplied by the
sum of 1 plus the Safety Efficiency Issue, topic to the Most Return. The Safety Efficiency Issue won’t exceed the Most
Return, whatever the appreciation within the stage of any Underlying, which can be important. Accordingly, the utmost Redemption Quantity
of the securities for every $1,000 principal quantity of securities is $1,000 multiplied by the sum of 1 plus the Most Return. Any fee
on the securities is topic to our potential to pay our obligations as they change into due.

 

Buffered Accelerated Return Fairness Securities 7

THE PROBABILITY THAT THE FINAL LEVEL OF THE LOWEST
PERFORMING UNDERLYING WILL BE LESS THAN ITS BUFFER LEVEL WILL DEPEND ON THE VOLATILITY OF SUCH UNDERLYING

 

“Volatility”
refers back to the frequency and magnitude of adjustments within the stage of an Underlying. The higher the anticipated volatility with respect to an
Underlying on the Commerce Date, the upper the expectation as of the Commerce Date that the Ultimate Degree of such Underlying may very well be lower than
its Buffer Degree, indicating the next anticipated danger of loss on the securities. The phrases of the securities are set, partly, primarily based on
expectations in regards to the volatility of the Underlyings as of the Commerce Date. The volatility of any Underlying can change considerably over
the time period of the securities. The extent of any Underlying may fall sharply, which may lead to a big lack of principal. You
needs to be keen to just accept the draw back market danger of the Underlyings and the potential to lose a big quantity of your principal
at maturity.

 

THE U.S. FEDERAL TAX CONSEQUENCES OF AN INVESTMENT
IN THE SECURITIES ARE UNCLEAR

 

There isn’t a direct authorized
authority relating to the correct U.S. federal tax therapy of the securities, and we don’t plan to request a ruling from the Inner
Income Service (the “IRS”). Consequently, important elements of the tax therapy of the securities are unsure, and the
IRS or a court docket won’t agree with the therapy of the securities as pay as you go monetary contracts which might be handled as “open transactions.”
If the IRS had been profitable in asserting another therapy of the securities, the tax penalties of the possession and disposition
of the securities, together with the timing and character of earnings acknowledged by U.S. traders and the withholding tax penalties to non-U.S.
traders, is likely to be materially and adversely affected. Furthermore, future laws, Treasury rules or IRS steering may adversely
have an effect on the U.S. federal tax therapy of the securities, presumably retroactively.

 

Dangers Referring to the Underlyings

 

YOU WILL BE SUBJECT TO RISKS RELATING TO THE RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN THE UNDERLYINGS

 

The securities are linked
to the person efficiency of every Underlying. As such, the securities will carry out poorly if solely one of many Underlyings performs
poorly. For instance, if one Underlying appreciates from its Preliminary Degree to its Ultimate Degree, however the Ultimate Degree of the Lowest Performing
Underlying is lower than its Buffer Degree, you can be uncovered to the depreciation of the Lowest Performing Underlying and you’ll not
profit from the efficiency of another Underlying. Every extra Underlying to which the securities are linked will increase the danger
that the securities will carry out poorly. By investing within the securities, you assume the danger that the Ultimate Degree of no less than one of many
Underlyings will likely be lower than its Buffer Degree, whatever the efficiency of another Underlying.

 

It’s unimaginable to foretell
the connection between the Underlyings. If the performances of the Underlyings exhibit no relationship to one another, it’s extra probably
that one of many Underlyings will trigger the securities to carry out poorly. Nonetheless, if the performances of the fairness securities included
in every Underlying are associated such that the performances of the Underlyings are correlated, then there may be much less probability that just one
Underlying will trigger the securities to carry out poorly. Moreover, to the extent that every Underlying represents a unique market
section or market sector, the danger of 1 Underlying performing poorly is bigger. In consequence, you aren’t solely taking market danger on
every Underlying, you’re additionally taking a danger referring to the connection among the many Underlyings.

 

THE SECURITIES ARE LINKED TO THE RUSSELL 2000®
INDEX AND ARE SUBJECT TO THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH SMALL-CAPITALIZATION COMPANIES

 

The Russell 2000®
Index consists of fairness securities issued by corporations with comparatively small market capitalization. These fairness securities typically
have higher inventory worth volatility, decrease buying and selling quantity and fewer liquidity than the fairness securities of large-capitalization corporations,
and are extra weak to antagonistic enterprise and financial developments than these of large-capitalization corporations. As well as, small-capitalization
corporations are sometimes much less established and fewer steady financially than large-capitalization corporations. These corporations might rely upon
a small variety of key personnel, making them extra weak to lack of personnel. Such corporations are inclined to have smaller revenues, much less
various product traces, smaller shares of their services or products markets, fewer monetary sources and fewer aggressive strengths than
large-capitalization corporations and are extra prone to antagonistic developments associated to their merchandise. Due to this fact, the Russell 2000®
Index could also be extra risky than it will be if it had been composed of fairness securities issued by large-capitalization corporations.

motion, together with legislative acts and govt orders, may materially have an effect on the Underlyings. For instance, in response to latest govt
orders, shares of corporations which might be decided to be linked to the Individuals’s Republic of China navy, intelligence and safety
equipment could also be delisted from a U.S. change, eliminated as a element in indices or change traded funds, or transactions in, or holdings
of, securities with publicity to such shares might in any other case change into prohibited beneath U.S. legislation. If authorities regulatory motion ends in
such penalties, there could also be a fabric and adverse impact on the securities.

 

Dangers Referring to the Issuer

 

CREDIT SUISSE IS SUBJECT TO SWISS REGULATION

 

As a Swiss financial institution, Credit score
Suisse is topic to regulation by governmental companies, supervisory authorities and self-regulatory organizations in Switzerland. Such
regulation is more and more extra intensive and complicated and topics Credit score Suisse to dangers. For instance, pursuant to Swiss banking legal guidelines,
the Swiss Monetary Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) might open decision proceedings if there are justified considerations that Credit score Suisse

rankings.

 

Some or all of those
components might affect the value that you’ll obtain when you select to promote your securities previous to maturity. The impression of any of the
components set forth above might improve or offset some or all of any change ensuing from one other issue or components.

 

THE ESTIMATED VALUE OF THE SECURITIES ON THE TRADE
DATE MAY BE LESS THAN THE PRICE TO PUBLIC

 

The preliminary estimated
worth of your securities on the Commerce Date (as decided by reference to our pricing fashions and our inside funding fee) could also be considerably
lower than the unique Worth to Public. The Worth to Public of the securities consists of any reductions or commissions in addition to transaction
prices resembling bills incurred to create, doc and market the securities and the price of hedging our dangers as issuer of the securities
by means of a number of of our associates (which features a projected revenue). These prices will likely be successfully borne by you as an investor
within the securities. These quantities will likely be retained by Credit score Suisse or our associates in reference to our structuring and providing of
the securities (besides to the extent reductions or commissions are reallowed to different broker-dealers or any prices are paid to 3rd events).

 

On the Commerce Date, we
worth the parts of the securities in accordance with our pricing fashions. These embrace a hard and fast earnings element valued utilizing our
inside funding fee, and particular person choice parts valued utilizing proprietary pricing fashions depending on inputs resembling volatility,
correlation, dividend charges, rates of interest and different components, together with assumptions about future market occasions and/or environments. These
inputs could also be market-observable or could also be primarily based on assumptions made by us in our discretionary judgment. As such, the payout on the securities
may be replicated utilizing a mix of those parts and the worth of those parts, as decided by us utilizing our pricing fashions,
will impression the phrases of the securities at issuance. Our choice valuation fashions are proprietary. Our pricing fashions consider
components resembling rates of interest, volatility and time to maturity of the securities, they usually rely partly on sure assumptions about
future occasions, which can show to be incorrect.

 

As a result of Credit score Suisse’s
pricing fashions might differ from different issuers’ valuation fashions, and since funding charges taken under consideration by different issuers might
differ materially from the charges utilized by Credit score Suisse (even amongst issuers with comparable creditworthiness), our estimated worth at any time
might not be corresponding to estimated values of comparable securities of different issuers.

 

EFFECT OF INTEREST RATE USED IN STRUCTURING THE SECURITIES

 

The interior funding
fee we use in structuring notes resembling these securities is often decrease than the rate of interest that’s mirrored within the yield on
our standard debt securities of comparable maturity within the secondary market (our “secondary market credit score spreads”). If on
the Commerce Date our inside funding fee is decrease than our secondary market credit score spreads, we anticipate that the financial phrases of the securities
will usually be much less favorable to you than they might have been if our secondary market credit score unfold had been utilized in structuring the
securities. We may even use our inside funding fee to find out the value of the securities if we publish a bid to repurchase your securities

SECONDARY MARKET PRICES

 

If Credit score Suisse (or
an affiliate) bids in your securities in secondary market transactions, which we aren’t obligated to do, the secondary market worth
(and the worth used for account statements or in any other case) could also be larger or decrease than the Worth to Public and the estimated worth of the
securities on the Commerce Date. The estimated worth of the securities on the duvet of this pricing complement doesn’t symbolize a minimal
worth at which we might be keen to purchase the securities within the secondary market (if any exists) at any time. The secondary market worth
of your securities at any time can’t be predicted and can replicate the then-current estimated worth decided by reference to our pricing
fashions, the associated inputs and different components, together with our inside funding fee, customary bid and ask spreads and different transaction
prices, adjustments in market situations and deterioration or enchancment in our creditworthiness. In circumstances the place our inside funding
fee is larger than our secondary market credit score spreads, our secondary market bid in your securities may very well be much less favorable than what
different sellers may bid as a result of, assuming all else equal, we use the upper inside funding fee to cost the securities and different sellers
may use the decrease secondary market credit score unfold to cost them. Moreover, assuming no change in market situations from the Commerce
Date, the secondary market worth of your securities will likely be decrease than the Worth to Public as a result of it won’t embrace any reductions or
commissions and hedging and different transaction prices. If you happen to promote your securities to a seller in a secondary market transaction, the seller
might impose a further low cost or fee, and because of this the value you obtain in your securities could also be decrease than the value
at which we might repurchase the securities from such seller.

 

We (or an affiliate)
might initially publish a bid to repurchase the securities from you at a worth that can exceed the then-current estimated worth of the securities.
That larger worth displays our projected revenue and prices, which can embrace reductions and commissions that had been included within the Worth
to Public, and that larger worth might also be initially used for account statements or in any other case. We (or our affiliate) might supply to pay
this larger worth, in your profit, however the quantity of any extra over the then-current estimated worth will likely be short-term and is predicted
to say no over a interval of roughly three months.

designed to be short-term buying and selling devices and any sale previous to maturity may lead to a considerable loss to you. You have to be
keen and in a position to maintain your securities to maturity.

you might be able to commerce your securities is prone to rely upon the value, if any, at which Credit score Suisse (or its associates) is keen
to purchase the securities. If you must promote your securities previous to maturity, you might not be in a position to take action or you’ll have to promote them
