Overview  
Category profile
UBS Small & Mid Cap Funds offer investors the opportunity to diversify into small and medium-sized companies and to limit the high stock-specific risk associated with direct investments in this asset category. These funds leverage UBS's experience and strong country knowledge: the investment in small and medium-sized companies is made on the basis of extensive bottom-up research, which then feeds into the active management of the portfolio.

Fund description
Actively managed equity portfolio investing in US small-cap stocks.
Investments are predominantly made in companies with a market capitalisation of less than USD 4 billion.
When selecting stocks, the portfolio management team focuses on companies' flexibility and their ability to innovate.
The fund is diversified across various sectors.

Key benefits
The fund taps into the knowledge of proven specialists in US small-cap companies.
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 US small-cap companies to be consistently identified.

Risks
UBS Small & Mid Cap 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. Focusing intentionally on small cap equities may entail additional risks. 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).
