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
Very actively managed equity fund based on a concentrated equity portfolio investing in selected Australian companies.
The fund is diversified across various sectors.
Investment decisions are based on a disciplined investment philosophy and fundamental research.

Key benefits
The fund draws on the knowledge of proven investment specialists based locally in Sydney.
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 enables the most attractive Australian companies to be consistently identified.
Investors benefit from a global investment platform of UBS Asset Management.

Risks
UBS Country & Regional 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 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).
