Portfolio managers comments
August 2018


The equity markets took a downturn in August, with the EUROSTOXX 50 NR losing 3.7%. After companies finished reporting their fairly sound 1H earnings, the political environment clouded the scene again, with the crisis in Turkey and some emergings, signals of a slowdown in China, Italy’s forthcoming budget and how it fits with conditions for remaining in the euro area, and Donald Trump’s continued trade war. Visibility is hazy on the effects of these various issues on future economic growth, so caution remains the watchword.

MIURI shed 74bps in August. There was nothing major to report this...

Briefly

The Sub-Fund's strategy qualifies as Long/Short equity and its investment strategy relies on fundamental financial analysis. It invests in equities issued in Europe (EEA plus Switzerland). The global risk associated with investments of the Sub-Fund (Longs and Shorts) can not exceed 200% of the net assets of the Sub-Fund. With a net exposure limited to +/- 30% of assets under management, it is not significantly dependent on the equity market trends and the performance depends essentially on the capacity of the Investment Manager in identifying equities that have the characteristics to outperform their indexes or their sector indexes.

What objective?

The Sub-Fund seeks to achieve a higher annual performance than the risk-free rate represented by the EONIA rate. This performance is sought by associating it to a lower annual volatility than 5%.

What breakdown?

The Sub-fund will invest at all times in:
- European equities or equivalent financial instruments (such as ETFs): 0 - 100%;
- CFDs – Index-linked futures: 0 - 100%;
- Monetary products: 0 - 100%.

For what type of investor?

All investors, in particular investors seeking absolute performance with managed volatility. Exposure to the equities market though with limited directional risk.
