Investment objective and policy

This fund invests mainly in UCITS and other UCIs with no geographical, sector or currency restriction. The remaining assets may be invested in cash or any other type of transferable security that is listed or traded on regulated markets. The equity weighting can vary between 50% and 100% of net assets. The emphasis is on international diversification of investments and flexibility in terms of themes and sectors that may potentially be present within the fund.

Management report - 2nd Quarter 2017

Overall, the second quarter proved to be a time of transition for the financial markets. After six particularly robust months, investors certainly needed a digestion phase. The fund gave up 0.15% over the period. The equity weighting ended the quarter at around 73%. This level was maintained throughout the quarter although some profits were taken at the beginning of May after the French elections. At the end of June, following a slight correction on the equity markets, positions were redeployed to benefit from the second-quarter earnings reporting season which runs from mid-July to end-August. This is expected to reflect strong economic momentum worldwide, particularly in the eurozone. The current financial cycle has now reached a high degree of maturity, which means that the prevailing trends have pushed up absolute and relative valuation levels to elevated levels. It is therefore very important to preserve the balance of the portfolio and be on guard for early signs of an end to this economic and financial cycle.
