Principal investment risks of the Edmond de Rothschild SICAV Euro Sustainable Growth:
This UCITS is in risk category 6, which reflects the exposure to equity markets of up to 110% of its assets, representing a high risk/reward profile. The risks described below are not exhaustive. It is up to each investor to analyse the risks associated with each investment and to form their own opinion. Risk of capital loss: The UCITS does not benefit from any protections. This means that the capital initially invested may not be returned in full even if subscribers retain their units for the entire recommended investment period. Equity risk: The value of an equity can fluctuate due to factors that are specific to the issuing company, as well as exterior political or economic factors. Changes in equity markets, as well as in convertible bond markets whose growth is partly linked to that of underlying equities, can lead to significant fluctuations in net assets which can have a negative impact on the net asset value of the UCITS. SRI (socially responsible investment) selection related risk: The selection of SRI securities can result in the UCITS departing from the benchmark. Risk related to small- and mid-cap companies: The securities of companies with small and medium capitalisations can be significantly less liquid and more volatile than those of companies with large capitalisations. The net asset value of the UCITS can therefore fluctuate more rapidly and more significantly.
Principal investment risks of the Edmond de Rothschild SICAV Euro Sustainable Credit:
The fund is classified in category 3 in line with the nature of securities and geographical zones in the “objectives and investment policy” section of the key investor information document (KIID). 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 Fund does not guarantee or protect the capital invested, and there is a risk that the capital invested will not be returned in full. Unitholders are advised that the performance objective is provided for information only and does not in any way constitute an obligation for the management company to provide results. Credit risk: If a credit event occurs (for example, a significant widening of the remuneration margin of an issuer compared to a State bond with the same maturity), or a default or downgrading of the quality of bond issuers (for example, a downgrading of their rating), the value of the debt securities in which the Fund is invested may drop, and cause the Fund’s net asset value to fall. The use of high-yield securities up to a 100% limit of the Fund’s net assets may result in sharper falls in net asset value, and such securities can present a greater risk of default. This Fund must therefore be considered as speculative, and is specifically intended for investors who are conscious of the risks inherent in investing in securities whose rating is low or non-existent. Credit risk from investing in high yield bonds: the fund may invest in government and corporate rated as non investment grade by a rating agency (i.e. rated below BBB- by Standards and Poor’s or an equivalent rating from another independent agency) or considered as equivalent by our investment company. These issues are so-called speculative debt securities with a higher risk of issuer default. The fund must be viewed as partly speculative and concerns in particular investors who are aware of the risks inherent in these securities. Consequently, investing in high yield securities (speculative securities which have a higher default risk) may entail a bigger fall in the fund’s net asset value. Interest-rate risk: Interest-rate risk is the risk that bond-market rates may increase, thereby causing bond prices to fall and reducing the Fund’s net asset value. A rise in interest rates may negatively affect performance for an indefinite period; similarly, if the portfolio’s sensitivity is negative, a drop in interest rates may have a negative impact on performance for an unspecified period. This phenomenon may cause the net asset value to fall. Such interest-rate risk may cause the net asset value to fall. Risk linked to the SRI (Socially Responsible Investing) selection: the selection of SRI securities may cause the performance of the UCITS to differ from that of the benchmark.
Private equity strategies: All Private Equity investments involve significant risks that relate especially to the type of investments made. There is no guarantee that the objectives will be achieved or that the capital invested will be returned. A potential investor should only invest if they can afford the total loss of their investment. This type of investment is only for qualified investors who have the financial capacity to understand and the ability to accept the extent of their exposure to the risks and low liquidity that is inherent in this type of investment. It is each investor’s responsibility to obtain any information that they may require before making an investment decision, to analyse the risk, form their own opinion and receive specialist advice on these questions, in order to assess the legal, tax, accounting and financial benefits and risks related to the investment, and in relation to their own situation, especially their financial situation.
