Fund size USD 66 Mio.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Please note that the aforementioned performance is shown in the fund currency USD (US Dollar) and not Euro and therefore currency influences in investment currencies other than the fund currency are not taken into account in the performance shown.

The equity fund invests in companies from emerging markets in the mid & large cap segment. The fund is currently aimed at qualified investors in Switzerland.

Our systematic investment approach combines a classic fundamental view with a comprehensive sustainability evaluation and the investments are combined according to careful risk management and diversification criteria. The fund has around 200 equity positions and favors companies with higher and more stable growth rates, sustainable and above-average profitability, a healthy balance sheet, and a reasonable valuation. ESG assessment is fully integrated into the selection process and companies or sectors that run counter to sustainability objectives are excluded. The fund has an explicit portfolio decarbonization target in line with the Paris Climate Agreements and is classified as Article 9 (SFDR). This fundamental bottom-up approach results in a portfolio of quality companies that are characterized by above-average sustainability and clear decarbonization targets.

Our fundamental stock selection of the best companies increases the probability of superior performance. Diversification into a large number of good companies enables us to achieve robust results by spreading our risk and benefiting from various growth opportunities. Furthermore, investing beyond the benchmark opens up a wider range of opportunities. We systematically seek outperformance opportunities based on three sources: fundamental stock selection, highly diversified portfolios, and an investment universe that goes beyond the benchmark holdings.
