Overview  
Category profile
UBS Hedge Funds are innovative products that offer the optimum combination of the most promising hedge funds worldwide, covering a variety of investment styles and strategies. In this way, these funds of hedge funds target a positive absolute return over the long term whilst maintaining a low correlation to traditional asset classes and keeping volatility moderate. Thanks to a mix of different strategies and fund managers, this fund-of-funds structure allows for higher risk diversification than is possible with an investment in an individual hedge fund.

Fund description
Opportunistic UCITS fund of funds designed to generate return potential over an economic market cycle (3-5 years) through investing primarily in a portfolio of UCITS hedge funds (Fund of Hedge Fund)
Diversified portfolio of 10-25 funds advised by multiple hedge fund managers with distinct investment approaches
Primarily focusing on liquid hedge fund strategies, such as Equity Hedged, Trading and Relative Value. Where appropriate, investments may also be made in Credit and other hedge fund strategies.
The exchange rate risk between EUR and USD is largely hedged.

Key benefits
Access a diversified fund of hedge funds portfolio selected by a dedicated investment team
Benefit from the hedge fund value proposition, namely taking advantage of investment opportunities while controlling downside risk
Benefit from the high levels of transparency that is required by the regulator
Benefit from funds that can be traded on a weekly basis

Risks
Unlike traditional investments, hedge funds do not primarily aim to attain exposure in specific markets or investment instruments. They differ in their more frequent use of derivative instruments and in trying to leverage their return by borrowing funds, using derivatives and taking up short positions on securities. As a result, they have potential risks in addition to the market, credit and liquidity risks associated with traditional investments. This requires corresponding risk tolerance and capacity. Investors should also be aware that these funds offer no capital preservation guarantee. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions.
