Overview  
Category profile
UBS Dynamic Alpha Funds are managed to concrete return targets, while seeking to ensure the lowest possible fluctuations in value. As with any investment, the risk of a loss cannot be ruled out. The funds employ very active management which enables them to exploit attractive market opportunities worldwide. The funds are managed independently of a benchmark, which is why there is no fixed asset allocation. In addition, the funds make use of innovative techniques with derivatives that aim to generate positive returns even in sluggish or negative market environments.

Fund description
Invests globally in fixed income and equities using disciplined risk budgeting and independent of a reference index.
Very active, flexible management. Portfolio adjusted in line with the latest market expectations, with an aim to limit drawdowns. As with any investment, the risk of a loss cannot be ruled out.
Foreign currencies are largely hedged versus the reference currency. Nevertheless, an active currency strategy is applied.

Key benefits
Innovative techniques to exploit return potential in any market environment.
Transparent return target not tied to a benchmark.
Very active management and global diversification.
Major market fluctuations can be cushioned.

Risks
The fund offers no guarantee. It may see phases with negative performance. This requires corresponding risk tolerance and capacity and a medium to long investment horizon to ensure a high likelihood of meeting the return target. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. The fund can use derivatives, which may result in additional risks (particularly counterparty risk). Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. A description of the fund specific risks can be found in the prospectus.
