Overview  
Category profile
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.

Fund description
This actively managed, defensive equity fund invests in companies from the US that are expected to offer a high yield from share buybacks and dividends.
The fund focuses on quality factors to exclude low quality stocks, including the company’s ability to pay stable or growing dividends.
The fund aims to generate additional income through call overwriting.
The strategy is based on a quantitative model.

Key benefits
Easy access to a high quality, defensive US equity portfolio which aims to provide some downside cushion during market corrections.
Strong income component generated from share buybacks, dividends and call option premiums.
Investors can profit from a portfolio that seeks optimal diversification - low single stock weights and broad sector allocations.
Experienced investment team with a solid track record in running both US equity and equity yield strategies.

Risks
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). In distributing share classes, the equity yield, net of fund fees, will be distributed. The distributing (-dist) share classes of this fund intend to distribute capital as well as income (e.g. from dividends). Investors in some jurisdictions may incur a higher rate of tax on distributed capital than on any capital gains which are realized 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.

Indicative current equity yield 1)
7.10%
30/11/2017
1)  This figure is indicative and gross of flat fee. The indicative current equity yield is the sum of three yield sources: 1) dividends paid by the companies the Fund currently holds. 2) the yield from company profits returned to shareholders via share buybacks. 3) premiums received from selling call options on the stocks held in the Fund. The dividend yield portion is based on the dividends of the previous year paid by the companies held in the Fund (irrespective of whether the stock was held at the date the dividend was paid). US withholding taxes paid by the fund are already deducted from this figure. The portion of yield derived from share buybacks is calculated as the net cash each company held in the fund used to repurchase shares (gross share buybacks minus share issuance) based on the most recent annual financial statement. This net cash is divided by the market capitalization from the previous month end resulting in the share buyback yield. The portion of yield derived from option premiums is based on the annualized sum of option premiums collected over the past 12 months. The final equity yield can deviate significantly from the indicative current equity yield due to changes in company earnings, dividends, share buybacks, stock prices, option premiums etc. The equity yield (yield from the income sources) should not be confused with the overall fund performance that may be subject to fluctuations in value (equity market risk). In accumulating share classes, the equity yield, net of fund fees, will be accumulated. In distributing share classes, the equity yield, net of fund fees, will be distributed.
