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 actively managed equity fund based on a concentrated equity portfolio investing in promising large, medium and small capitalised Swiss companies.
The fund manager is given great flexibility to take focused views on the most attractive stocks and exploit the best opportunities, unconstrained by the reference index.
The fund offers investors a broader diversification compared to the index including lower maximum single stock weights (max. 10%) and a more balanced sector allocation.
The fund draws on the knowledge of proven investment specialists based in Zurich (Switzerland).
Due to the significant deviation from the reference index, the fund offers the potential to outperform the reference index.
UBS's proprietary fundamental valuation approach allows consistent selection of attractive Swiss companies.
Investors benefit from a global investment platform of UBS Asset Management.
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).
