Fund strategy

Investment objective

This multi-asset fund aims to achieve steady capital growth, while respecting risk diversification.

Key features

The fund invests worldwide across multiple asset classes, predominantly in money market instruments and bonds. In addition, it has limited exposure to equities and alternative investments. The fund strives for an asymmetric risk/return profile so that the participation potential in favorable markets is higher than the loss potential in unfavorable markets. The fund also uses derivative financial instruments, primarily for hedging purposes.


The investment team of seasoned multi-asset specialists adheres to a rigorous process to identify the most promising opportunities within the investment universe. Convinced to reach the best results by pairing human skills with quantitative excellence, the analysts combine their qualitative research with cutting-edge technology. The team manages both asset allocation and individual positions in the fund actively to seize attractive new opportunities whenever they occur, while keeping the risks under permanent control.

  • Price fluctuations of investments due to market, industry and issuer linked changes are possible

  • Interest rates may vary, bonds suffer price declines on rising interest rates

  • Investments in foreign currencies are subject to currency fluctuations

  • Mid-yield bonds may be more speculative investments than bonds with a higher rating due to higher credit risk, higher price fluctuations, a higher risk of loss of capital deployed

  • High-yield bonds (non-investment-grade bonds/junk bonds) may be subject to greater market fluctuations, risk of default or loss of income and principal than higher-rated bonds

  • Commodity investments might be subject to considerable volatility and exposed to sudden fluctuations over a long period. Various commodity markets may also be suject to direct government intervention that might cause extreme price volatility of commodity investments
