Overview  
Category profile
UBS Key Selection Equity Funds enable the investor to exploit the upside potential of actively managed portfolios. Our experienced fund managers select stocks from our extensive research base to boost the performance of the fund, whilst maintaining a diversified portfolio. These funds offer investors higher expected returns but are also subject to greater price volatility.

Fund description
Actively managed equity fund based on compelling active stock selection
Diversified equity portfolio investing in selected companies worldwide, mainly large caps
Diversified across sectors offering broad coverage of the global market
Based on a disciplined investment philosophy and globally integrated, state-of-the-art fundamental research

Key benefits
Easy access to the global equity markets
Portfolio structure can deviate substantially from the reference index in order to increase outperformance potential.
The fund managers can also tap into the knowledge and experience of a network of equity analysts around the globe.
UBS’s proprietary fundamental valuation approach allows for consistent identification of the most attractive companies worldwide

Risks
UBS Key Selection 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 risk 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).
