Overview  
Category profile
UBS Strategy Funds are designed as professionally managed delegation solutions. Investors can choose from six different strategies exhibiting a specific expected risk/return profile (see chart): Fixed Income, Income, Yield, Balanced, Growth and Equity. The fund is actively managed and based on UBS's investment policy, the UBS House View.

Fund description
The fund invests globally in a diversified range of equities, mainly high-quality bonds and money market instruments.
The fund generally strikes an even balance between equities and bonds.
Foreign currencies are largely hedged versus the reference currency. Nevertheless, an active currency strategy is applied if opportunities are seen.
The fund is based on UBS's investment policy, the UBS House View.
Exposure to movements of local currencies’ exchange rates versus USD remains unhedged.
The exchange rate risk between USD and CAD 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
The fund is actively managed and offers the investor straightforward and convenient access to UBS House View, which draws on the professional insights of UBS investment specialists worldwide.
Investors benefit globally from diversified market opportunities in the area of bonds and equities. In addition to high-quality bonds, investments can also be made in other bond segments.
The weighting of the different asset classes is maintained within a specific range in order to take account of the fund's risk profile.
The fund is attractive for investors who see risks as opportunities too. The fund aims to generate interest and dividend income as well as capital gains.

Risks
The fund invests in equities, bonds of varying credit quality and money market securities on a global basis, and may therefore be subject to high fluctuations in value. The fund may use derivatives which can reduce investment risk or give rise to additional risks (inter alia the counterparty risk). 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. 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.
