Why Index-based Interest is a Big
Index-based interest allows investors and savers to participate in the
upside of an index without participating in the downside!
A problem with talking about average investment returns is
that there is real ambiguity about what people mean by "average". For
example, if you had an investment that went up 100% one year and then came
down 50% the next, you certainly wouldn't say that you had an average return
of 25% = (100% - 50%)/2, because your principal is back where it started:
your real annualized gain is zero.
In this example, the 25% is the simple average, or "arithmetic
mean". The zero percent that you really got is the "geometric mean",
also called the "annualized return", or the "CAGR" for Compound
Annual Growth Rate.
Volatile investments are frequently stated in terms of
the simple average, rather than the CAGR that you actually get. (Bad news -
the CAGR is smaller.)

Index-based interest can avoid this problem because it allows investors and
savers to participate in the upside of the index without participating in
