The main difference between Funds and traditional products managed according to the price/value approach is the method used to make investment decisions. UBS has developed a proprietary «quantitative» model, designed to achieve outperformance by systematically exploiting market anomalies.
Actively managed equity portfolio that invests in US companies.
Application of a quantitative approach based primarily on fundamental factors to exploit market anomalies and avoid cluster risks.
The degree of relevance the model accords to each of the above factors is adapted continually in line with market conditions.
The exchange rate risk between USD and EUR is largely hedged.
A simple way to gain exposure to US equity markets
The use of quantitative models gives investors access to a broad range of investment opportunities as over 1,000 US stocks are covered.
Investors can also profit from additional diversification thanks to the quantitative investment approach applied.
The fund is managed by a specialised quant investments team.
UBS Quant 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 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).
