SUB FUND RISK PROFILE
The Subfund is a category 4 (on a scale of 1-7) or high risk/return Subfund profile which reflects its ability to have equity market exposure of between 0% and 100%. The risks described below are not exhaustive: it is the responsibility of investors to analyse each investment’s risk and to come to their own opinion.
Risk of capital loss: The UCITS does not guarantee or protect the capital invested; investors may therefore not get back the full amount of their initial capital invested even if they hold their units for the recommended investment period. Discretionary management risk: The discretionary management style is based on expectations of the performance of different markets (equities, bonds). However, the Subfund may not be invested in the best-performing stocks at all times. The same applies with respect to its exposure to one asset class rather than another. The Subfund’s performance may therefore be lower than the investment objective, and a decline in its net asset value may lead to a negative performance. Equity risk: The Subfund may be exposed to the equity markets either via direct investments in equities and/or via financial contracts and/or UCITS or AIFs. Fluctuations of the equity markets may lead to substantial variations in the net assets which may have a negative impact on the performance of the Subfund. Therefore, the net asset value of the Subfund could drop in the event of a decline in the equity markets. The Subfund may present a risk and volatility profile that may engender sharper price fluctuations than those experienced by the global equity markets. The use of financial contracts with the aim of reducing the portfolio’s exposure to equity risk is likely to modify the Subfund’s risk profile. Risk associated with financial contract commitments and counterparty risk : The subfund is exposed to risks inherent to derivative products. Risks inherent to the use of futures, options and swaps include, but are not limited to: downward and upward fluctuations in the prices of options, warrants, swaps and futures, due to changes in the prices of their underlying instruments; gaps between the prices of derivatives and the value of their underlying instruments; the occasionally limited liquidity of such instruments on the secondary market. Entering into derivative contracts on the OTC market exposes the subfund to potential counterparty risk. In the event the counterparty to a derivative defaults, the subfund is liable to incur a financial loss. Use of derivative products may therefore generate risks of specific losses for the subfund, which it would not have been exposed to if such strategies were not implemented.
