Overview  
Category profile
UBS Growth Funds focus on companies with significant competitive advantages that should enable them to generate high returns. This means that these funds do not invest primarily in a specific equity class but in line with a particular equity style. They give investors the opportunity to participate in companies that offer premium growth potential.

Fund description
Actively managed equity portfolio investing in selected US companies.
Investments are focused on growth stocks.
The fund is diversified across various sectors.
Investments are primarily made in large-cap companies
The exchange rate risk between USD and CHF is largely hedged.

Key benefits
The portfolio features companies that offer above-average growth potential compared to the overall market.
The portfolio seeks to diversify its risk across Elite, Classic, and Cyclical growth companies.
The fund is managed by a specialist growth investment team that has many years of success in managing investments.

Risks
UBS Growth 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).
