UBS 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).

Indicative current dividend yield 1)
||This figure is indicative only and gross of flat fee. The indicative current dividend yield is based on the dividends of last year paid by the companies held in the fund. Withholding taxes paid by the fund are already deducted from this figure. The final dividend yield can deviate significantly from the indicative current dividend yield due to changes in company earnings, dividends and stock prices etc. In accumulating share classes, the dividend yield, net of fund fees, will be accumulated. In distributing share classes, the dividend yield, net of fund fees, will be distributed.
