UBS (Lux) Equity SICAV - Global Opportunity Unconstrained (USD) (EUR hedged) P-4%-mdist
ISIN no.:  LU1278831570
Category profile
UBS Opportunity Equity Funds are actively managed funds which exploit three different earnings sources: large caps / blue chips, small/mid caps and a flexible liquidity component. Portfolio managers are able to allocate the funds' assets in line with the best return potential. These funds capture our best recommendations from research in a concentrated way, achieving superior returns primarily through active stock selection, tactical active cash allocation and strategic small and mid cap allocation.

Fund description
Actively managed equity fund that invests globally in high conviction companies.
Small and mid cap equities can be incorporated into the portfolio.
The fund can use a variety of investment strategies, which allow the management team to take advantage of declining stock prices through short selling.
The strategy takes an unconstrained approach, therefore can differ widely from the benchmark.
The fund seeks the best opportunities in the market based on fundamental, quantitative and qualitative information sources.
The exchange rate risk between USD and EUR is largely hedged.
This share class distributes a constant percentage share of the NAV, not a constant amount.
This share class is designed for investors who want to profit from performance opportunities on the financial markets and at the same time wish more stable distributions at a specific percentage level to cover recurring liquidity needs.
As the distributions are substantial, this share class is not designed for investors who want to build wealth. The latter may prefer the accumulating share class.
This share class must not be seen as an alternative to a savings account or fixed-interest paying investments.
The percentage distribution rate of this share class is unrelated to the interest or other income generated in the fund. The distribution is a percentage payment of the current amount of investment.
It is possible that the distributions result in an erosion of assets and a reduction of invested capital.
This share class may distribute capital as well as income. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. See risk section below.

Key benefits
Exposure to global equity markets through a largely unconstrained approach, diversified across countries and sectors.
Ability to exploit additional investment opportunities through the use of short positions.
Companies are selected independently from the benchmark, based on risk/reward considerations.
Flexible and nimble approach of a small, focused investment team that specializes in managing active funds.

UBS Opportunity Equity Funds invest in equities and may therefore be subject to high fluctuations in value. For this reason, an investment horizon of at least five years and corresponding risk tolerance and capacity are required. As

these UBS Funds pursue an active management style, each Fund's performance can deviate substantially from that of its reference index. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every Fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The fund can use derivatives, which may result in additional risks (particularly counterparty risk). The monthly 4%-mdist distributing share classes may distribute capital as well as income. It is possible that the distributions result in an erosion of assets and a reduction of invested capital. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. Investors in some jurisdictions may incur a higher rate of tax on distributed capital than on any capital gains which are realised on disposal of fund shares. Some investors may therefore choose to invest in the accumulating (-acc) instead of the distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors may be taxed at a later point in time on income and capital arising on accumulating (-acc) share classes compared to distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors should seek their own tax advice.
