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.

Investors benefit from a global investment platform of UBS Asset Management.
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).
