Fund strategy

In subscribing to TreeTop World Equity Index, you are investing in a sub-fund whose objective is to replicate, as closely as possible, the performance of the MSCI ACWI Index, net return reinvested in the “lndex”, regardless of its positive or negative development.

Day to day, for all classes of shares, the Management Company aims to achieve a tracking-error between the changes in the share valuations of the sub-fund and those of the Index inferior to 0.50% (with no guarantee in this regard from the Management Company). The valuation of equities included in this calculation is that of the sub-fund shares excluding hedging.

Partial currency hedging is in place for the IH share class : this exposure is 100% hedged against EUR on the following currencies: USD, GBP, JPY, CAD, CHF and AUD, but exposure to other currencies will not be covered. Using the composition of the MSCI ACWI Index as of 31 December 2017 as a benchmark, this means that the portion of the portfolio that is unhedged against currency risk amounts to approximately 15%, this proportion may be subject to change over time depending on changes to the foreign currencies listed in the Index. Thus, for share classes with currency exchange hedging, the tracking error levels relative to the Index may be different, due, in particular, to the impact that the hedging strategy of the currency exchange risk can have. For the IH share class, the exchange risk will be reduced by the partial coverage but the tracking error compared to the MSCI ACWI Index, which is not currency hedged, will be higher. The historical differences allow an estimate this level of tracking error to be 5% (estimate based on normal market conditions), this level, however, may be exceeded in case of high currency volatility between them.

The Index is an equity index calculated and published by the international index provider MSCI Inc. (“MSCI”). Equities included in the composition of the MSCI ACWI Index are among the most important values from the equity markets of developed and emerging countries.

Exposure to the Index will be achieved through physical replication, through direct investments in all constituents of the Index (particularly in shares of companies in the developed world and emerging markets). This replication may result in potentially significant portfolio transaction costs having an impact on yields. These costs are borne by the assets of the sub-fund, in addition to the fees mentioned in the section ‘Fees’ of the corresponding KIID. However, in order to manage inputs and outputs, as well as the characteristics of certain local equity markets (market access, local liquidity), the management company may combine physical replication with synthetic replication by using derivative instruments such as futures contracts. Regardless of the chosen method of replication, the sub-fund will permanently maintain complete exposure to the Index. In the case of synthetic replication of the Index, the counterparty risk will increase. The sub-fund may enter into temporary acquisitions and disposals of securities. Financial futures instruments may also be used for hedging purposes and/or to achieve investment objectives.

Net income and net realised gains of the sub-fund are systematically reinvested.

The sub-fund currency is the euro.

You may request reimbursement of your shares on any banking day in Brussels; buyback operations are executed on a daily basis. For more information on the composition of the sub-fund and its operation, please refer to the prospectus of the SICAV.

Recommendation: this sub-fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 5 years.

The IH share class is reserved for professional investors other than natural persons. The initial minimum subscription of EUR 10 million, with a partial exchange hedge.

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

Fund Manager

Amundi Asset Management

The exposure of TreeTop World Equity Index to the MSCI ACWI Index (the “Index”) is achieved through physical replication with a direct investment in all components of the Index and can be combined with a synthetic replication through derivative instruments.

The method of the physical replication involves replicating the benchmark by holding all financial instruments in the Index in the nearest possible proportion to those of the Index. The Management Company reserves the right to not invest in the securities comprising the Index, the weight of which would be too low.

If this replication method were to be considered no longer suitable (due to cost, a drop in the replication quality, etc), the Management Company may use other replication methods. Irrespective of the replication method, the sub-fund will be continuously 100% exposed to the Index.

 

Main risk factors defining the risk level

The risk/reward rating of the Fund reflects the following factor: it is invested in shares which carry higher risks than bonds or money market instruments.

Other risks to be considered

Moreover, it is be exposed to other risks: Currency exchange risk (risk of an investment value being affected by a change in the exchange rate) and Counterparty risk (the fund could lose money if any entity with which it does business becomes unwilling or unable to honor its obligations to the fund. This risk is present when using financial instruments for the synthetic replication of the Index).
