Edmond de Rothschild Prifund Defensive Strategy

A flexible and cautious strategy for today’s environment

Une stratégie flexible et prudente pour affronter l’environnement actuel

With European bond yields still at historic lows and persistent uncertainty on equity markets, cautious investors are faced with the major problem of how to get returns while keeping tight controls on risk.

Bonds, and especially government bonds, used traditionally to form the bedrock of conservatively-run portfolios. After a period of 'risk-free yields, bond investors are now faced with 'risk without yields' as well as worries of approaching interest rate hikes.

To deal with this complicated, low-visibility environment, Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management has the solution: EdR Prifund Defensive Strategy, a flexible allocation fund with a cautious profile.
