Fund objective
The fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in equities of Swiss companies. The fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in a concentrated range of equities of Swiss companies. This means typically holding fewer than 50 companies. The fund benefits from a bias towards small and medium-sized companies because the manager believes they are generally less well researched by other investors and so undervalued. Small-sized and mid-sized companies are companies which, at the time of purchase, are considered to be in the bottom 80% by market capitalisation of the Swiss equities market. The manager uses an active fund management style and place great emphasis on maintaining close contact with company managers. Fundamental research is the hallmark of our approach with analysts gaining a thorough insight into the management and market approach of Swiss companies. The fund may use derivatives with the aim of achieving investment gains, reducing risk or managing the fund more efficiently. The fund may also hold cash.
