UBS Country & Regional Funds are geared towards investors who want to take advantage of opportunities in particular countries or regions. These funds allow for broad diversification. Again, UBS`s proven research excellence is crucial here in ensuring optimal stock selection.
This actively managed equity fund invests in companies from across the globe that offer a high dividend yield
The fund focuses on quality factors to exclude low quality stocks, including the company’s ability to pay stable or growing dividends
The portfolio offers high diversification with low single stock weightings and diversified country and sector allocations
UBS High Dividend Funds have typical equity risk characteristics and are designed for risk tolerant investors who are willing to bear the risk and volatility of equity investments
Local currency risks are largely hedged versus SGD.
The strategy is based on a quantitative model.
This share class (mdist) may make monthly, gross-of-fee distributions. The distributions are not directly linked to any capital gain or income generated by the fund. This share class may distribute capital as well as income. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. This share class must not be seen as an alternative to a savings account or interest paying investments.
Easy access to stocks from across the globe that offer high dividend yields.
The focus on high quality stocks aims to exclude companies that do not pay sustainable dividends.
Investors can profit from a portfolio that seeks optimal diversification - low single stock weights and broad country and sector allocations.
Investors can largely avoid the impact from fluctuations of the local investment currencies versus USD
UBS 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). This share class (mdist) may make monthly, gross-of-fee distributions. As a consequence, in addition to income, this share class may also distribute capital. This can have negative tax consequences for investors in some jurisdictions. Investors should seek their own tax advice.
