Fund strategy

The sub-fund aims to increase the value of your investment over the long term through the active management of a diversified portfolio comprising different asset classes.

Under normal market conditions, the sub-fund invests in a diversified portfolio made up of different asset classes. The sub-fund may be exposed, on one hand, to international shares and, on the other hand, interest rate instruments, including bonds, money market instruments and bank deposits. Exposure to interest rate instruments is either through direct investments in these instruments or indirect investments through units of undertakings for collective investment in this type of instrument. The sub-fund may also use derivatives for investment purposes or to reduce investment risks (hedging). The subfund may invest in securities from issuers anywhere in the world, including in emerging markets, China and Russia. The sub-fund's exposure to shares of the asset class will not exceed 60%.

With a view of diversifying the sources of performance, the sub-fund is managed by different fund managers of TreeTop Asset Management, each following its own global active management approach. 

The sub-fund is managed on a discretionary basis with no reference to any indices.

The sub-fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 4 years.

This share class intends to distribute a dividend annually.

You can place orders to buy or sell shares of the sub-fund daily.

These objectives as well as the investment policy are an exact copy of those indicated in the  corresponding KIID.

The investment process of TreeTop Global Balanced aims to diversify the sources of return between different asset classes, different regions, different economic sectors and different global managers. The portfolio is divided among two main components: an “equity” component exposed, directly or indirectly, to international equity markets and an “interest rate instruments” component made of bonds, money market instruments and bank deposits. 

  • The "equity" component is allocated to different fund management teams of TreeTop Asset Management each following its own global investment approach.
  • The "interest rate instruments" component is managed conservatively: priority is given to the protection of capital relative to performance. Investments are made either through direct investments in these instruments or indirect investments through units of undertakings for collective investment in this type of instrument. The majority of investments are made in securities denominated in Euros.

The resulting portfolio of the investment process is an international portfolio, balanced between the different asset classes and different risks but not indexed. Ongoing monitoring of risk aims to ensure that the "equity" risk of the overall portfolio does not exceed 60%.

There are no financial instruments without risk and investing is always taking a gamble on the future. In addition to errors in judgment, the numerous uncontrollable events of a political (political crisis, war...), economic, financial (banking crisis, monetary policy change…), technological (discovery causing profound changes...) or of a specific nature for each company (strategic error, competitive changes...) can seriously penalize a potentially interesting investment.

The most effective way to reduce risk is to diversify the sources of return and risk among the different asset classes, different regions, different economic sectors and different global managers.

Diversification of asset classes and preservation of capital

The overall portfolio includes a “fixed income” component the principal aim of which is the protection of invested capital. The sub-fund's objective is that the weighting of this component represents no less than 40% of the total portfolio.

Diversification of managers

The overall portfolio is managed by two or more management teams that each follows their own investment style.

Weighting of investments

The sub-fund's exposure to shares will not exceed 60%.

Geographic Diversification

The sub-fund may invest in securities from issuers anywhere in the world, including in emerging markets, China and Russia.

Main risk factors defining the risk level

The sub-fund does not offer either protection or any capital guarantee or a guaranteed yield. The risk/reward rating of the sub-fund reflects the following factors: 1) up to 60% of the sub-fund may be invested in shares, 2) it may invest a part of its portfolio in warrants or call options on shares that are more volatile than shares and may loose their value at expiry date, and 3) it may favor particular economic sectors or regions, including emerging markets.

Other risks to be considered

Moreover, it is also exposed to the following risks: liquidity (convertible bonds may become hard to value or to sell at a desired price and time), default (an issuer’s bonds could become worthless if it is unable to repay its debts), counterparty (the sub-fund could lose money if any entity with which it does business becomes unwilling or unable to honor its obligations to the sub-fund), legal and tax risks (the sub-fund could be affected by foreign legal and tax changes, some of which may be retroactive).
