To maximize return, the Index Sponsor might from time to time also select Non-Swiss financial instruments . Furthermore, market conditions may make it advisable for the Index Sponsor to select and maintain, to the extent deemed appropriate, exposures in fixed income securities (Government Bonds, Corporate Bonds) term deposits and cash equivalent securities, as well as outright cash.
