Investment objective and policy

This fund has a minimum net equity exposure of 75% and invests in UCITS and other UCIs with no geographical, sector or currency restriction. The remaining assets may be invested in bond funds, cash or any other type of transferable security that is listed or traded on regulated markets. 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 - 3rd Quarter 2017

The fund gained 2.34% in the third quarter. Global growth is continuing to pick up: for the first time since 2007, the 45 countries monitored by the OECD have recorded GDP growth this year, and 33 of them are also in an acceleration phase. The central banks continue to issue prudent statements with detailed messages about future monetary tightening, which will be measured and paced over time. Persistently low inflation makes this possible for now. The current context is favourable to equity market investments. This generally accepted view calls for prudence, precisely because the markets have been rising for so long and valuations as a whole are no longer cheap. That said, the markets continued to surge ahead in the third quarter, driven by good economic data in three continents.
