Fund strategy

The sub-fund aims to increase the value of your investment over the long term.

Under normal market conditions, the sub-fund invests mainly in shares from issuers anywhere in the world, including in emerging markets, China and Russia. The sub-fund also invests in other types of securities that are consistent with its objective. The sub-fund may use derivatives for investment purposes or to reduce investment risks (hedging).

The fund management team selects - based on criteria such as product innovation, quality of management, sector leadership, valuation - companies around the world that appear to offer solid growth prospects or whose securities seem to them undervalued. The sub-fund invests in a concentrated portfolio made of shares of these companies and/or in financial instruments convertible in shares or entitling the sub-fund to acquire shares of these companies. The sub-fund invests mostly in mid-cap and large-cap companies. 

The MSCI All Country World index provides a reference of the investment universe of the fund manager. It is provided for information purpose only as indeed the sub-fund is managed on a discretionary basis and its portfolio will show a significant departure from the index.

The sub-fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 6 years.

This share class does not distribute dividends (meaning that any income earned by the sub-fund is added to the share price).

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.

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) the sub-fund may invest in a limited number of shares, and 2) the sub-fund may favour particular economic sectors or regions, including emerging markets.

Other risks to be considered

Moreover, it is also exposed to the following risks:

  • Liquidity risk: Convertible bonds may become hard to value or to sell at a desired price and time particularly when market conditions are unusual or when the issuer encounters financial difficulties.
  • Legal and tax risks: The sub-fund could be affected by foreign legal and tax changes, some of which may be retroactive.
  • Counterparty risk: The sub-fund could lose money if any entity with which it does business becomes unwilling or unable to honour its obligations to the sub-fund.
