UBS (Lux) Equity SICAV - US Income (USD) P-mdist
|ISIN no.: LU1217041372|
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, 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.
The distributing (-dist) share classes of this sub-fund intend to distribute capital (premiums from writing call options and the share buyback yield) as well as income (e.g. from dividends). See risk section below.
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 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.
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. 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.
