Fund objective
SUNARES is an actively managed fund which offers an important alternative to the majority of equity and index funds. The fund advisors divide the investment universe into two distinct halves according to the Chinese natural philosophy known as Yin and Yang representing the flow and duality inherent in all things. SUNARES has been founded on the belief that the natural balance that normally exists between the four elements of earth, water, fire and air has become distorted and temporarily lost, with the yang sectors (industries associated with fire and air) dominating. Therefore, SUNARES does not invest in companies associated with the financial or derivatives sector (yang) and instead concentrates on the themes of earth and water (yin). It is our opinion that the sectors associated with these elements are at the beginning of a longer structural uptrend as they seek to redress the current imbalances. Water, agriculture, energy, food and beverages, forestry, raw materials and precious metals are our favoured areas.
