UBS Opportunity Equity Funds are actively managed funds which exploit three different earnings sources: large caps / blue chips, small/mid caps and a flexible liquidity component. Portfolio managers are able to allocate the funds' assets in line with the best return potential. These funds capture our best recommendations from research in a concentrated way, achieving superior returns primarily through active stock selection, tactical active cash allocation and strategic small and mid cap allocation.
Very active fund management based on a concentrated equity portfolio that invests in selected US companies.
Compelling active security selection.
Small and mid cap equities added to the portfolio.
Market exposure may also deviate from that of the reference index to take account of market valuation.
The exchange rate risk between USD and EUR is largely hedged.
Efficient access to the US equity markets.
The concentrated portfolio allows investors to benefit in a highly effective manner from UBS Asset Management research.
Higher outperformance potential via additional investment opportunities in the small and mid-cap area and flexible management of market exposure.
Investors benefit from the fact that UBS is one of the few asset managers with a truly global investment platform.
UBS Opportunity 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).
