UBS Systematic Allocation Portfolio Funds are designed as professionally managed delegation solutions. Investors can choose from three different strategies based on specific expected risk/return profiles: Defensive, Medium and Dynamic. The fund is actively managed and exibits a very flexible allocation based on the proprietary UBS WM CIO World Equity Market model. In addition to fixed income and equities, the funds also invest in alternative investments, thus enhancing diversification and broadening the set of investment opportunities.
The fund invests globally and flexibly in a diversified range of equities, mainly high-quality bonds as well as alternative investments, including hedge funds.
The equity exposure varies decisively depending on the market situation and will normally be within a range of 20% and 80%. In deteriorating investment environments, the model reduces risk in the portfolio to lower equity exposure in downturns. In improving investment environments the model increases equity exposure.
The fund relies on the proprietary and quantitative UBS WM CIO World Equity Market model to determine the equity allocation and thereby avoids emotional human biases.
Foreign currencies are largely hedged versus the reference currency.
The fund participates in rising equity markets and aims to reduce risk during equity market drawdowns, which is well suited for clients who get nervous when markets start trending down and then focus more on reducing the downside.
The large decisive moves in risk via the equity allocation fits clients who don’t fancy small tactical adjustments, but rather look for significant allocation changes as answer to changing market environments.
The investment strategy is driven by pre-defined rules. This quantitative approach is using the innovative and proprietary UBS WM CIO World Equity Market Indicator and aims to avoid human decision error or bias.
The fund invests in bonds of varying credit quality and equities on a global basis, as well as in alternative forms of investment such as hedge funds. It may therefore be subject to fluctuations in value. The quantitative model is expected to be less effective during periods without notable upswings or downturns. The fund may use derivatives which can reduce investment risk or give rise to additional risks (inter alia the counterparty risk). The fund can invest in less liquid assets that may be difficult to sell in the case of distressed markets. It therefore cannot be ruled out that the daily issue and redemption of fund units may be suspended temporarily. The value of a unit may fall below the purchase price. This requires an elevated risk tolerance and capacity. Every fund reveals specific risks, a description of these risks can be found in the prospectus.
