Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

Investment Objective The Sub-Fund seeks to achieve a mix of income and capital growth by investing in investment grade corporate and government debt securities in Euros, over a medium term period. Investment Policy The Sub-Fund is actively managed in order to capture opportunities in the Euro investment grade debt market. The following investment decisions are undertaken after comprehensive macroeconomic and microeconomic analysis of the market: sector allocation geographical allocation credit curve positioning (the credit curve illustrates the relationship between investment term and credit yield) issuer selection instrument selection The Sub-Fund invests permanently at least two thirds of its total assets in investment grade or sub-investment grade governments and corporate transferable debt securities denominated in Euro. The Sub-Fund will mainly invest in investment-grade transferable debt securities issued by corporate and governement entities. Investment grade securities will be rated at least BBB- by Standard & Poor's or equivalent rating by Moody's or Fitch or if unrated then deemed to be so by the Investment Manager. Sub-investment grade securities will be rated between BB+ and B- by Standard & Poor's or equivalent rating by Moody's or Fitch or if unrated then deemed to be so by the Investment Manager. In case of downgrade below B- by Standard & Poor's or equivalent rating by Moody's or Fitch or if unrated then deemed to be so by the Investment Manager, securities will be sold within 6 months. If two different ratings of rating agencies exist, the lower rating will be considered, if more than two different ratings of rating agencies exist, the second highest rating will be considered. The selection of credit instruments is not exclusively and mechanically based on their publicly available credit ratings but also on an internal credit or market risk analysis. The decision to buy or sell assets is also based on other analysis criteria of the Investment Manager. Within the limit of 200% of the Sub-fund's net assets, the investment strategy may be achieved by direct investments and/or through derivatives, especially by entering into Credit Default Swaps. Derivatives may also be used for hedging purposes. Income For Capitalisation share classes (Cap), the dividend is reinvested. For Distribution share classes (Dis), the dividend is distributed. Sub-Fund Currency The reference currency of the Sub-Fund is EUR. Investment Horizon This Sub-Fund may not be suitable for investors who plan to withdraw their contribution within 3 years.
