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 Euro countries that offer a high dividend yield.
The fund aims to generate additional income through call overwriting.
The fund focuses on quality factors to exclude low quality stocks, including the company’s ability to pay stable or growing dividends.
The strategy is based on a quantitative model.
The exchange rate risk between EUR and USD is largely hedged.
The distributing (-dist) share classes of this sub-fund intend to distribute capital (premiums from writing call options) as well as income (e.g. from dividends). See risk section below.
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
Easy access to a high quality, defensive equity portfolio which aims to provide some downside cushion during market corrections.
Strong income component generated from dividends and call option premiums.
Investors can profit from a portfolio that seeks optimal diversification - low single stock weights and broad country and sector allocations.

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. The monthly 8%-mdist distributing share classes may distribute capital as well as income.
