Who is the product aimed at?
The Fund's exposure to equities is similar to that of an equity fund, which ranges between 50% - 70% of its Funds Under Management.
However, the Fund (and the level of exposure to equities) is actively managed on a continuous basis, in line with market conditions. Thus, if and when investment conditions become unfavourable, equity investments are replaced with investments in money market products.
The Fund's allocation is spread between high and limited risk products every day. Optimisation of the fund's exposure is achieved by studying and analysing market conditions, market fluctuations and by taking into account the manager's own expectations.
Where conditions require so (e.g. if there are major fluctuations, falling markets, etc.), the manager can drastically reduce or even totally eliminate the fund's exposure to equities. In cases like that, the Fund has been designed to function like a money market fund.
In every quarter the Fund sets an annual protection threshold for its net price equal to 85% of the unit net price in the previous quarter. Consequently, irrespective of how markets perform, the unit net price over the year from the observation date will not drop below the protection threshold. Of course, over the long-term, that threshold changes, moving either up or down depending on how the Fund performs.
MUTUAL FUNDS HAVE NO GUARANTEED RETURN AND PAST RETURNS DO NOT GUARANTEE FUTURE ONES.
