Category profile
UBS Country & Regional Funds are geared towards investors who want to take advantage of opportunities in particular countries or regions. These funds allow for broad diversification. Again, UBS`s proven research excellence is crucial here in ensuring optimal stock selection.

Fund description
This actively managed equity fund invests in companies from across the globe that offer a high dividend yield
The fund focuses on quality factors to exclude low quality stocks, including the company’s ability to pay stable or growing dividends
The portfolio offers high diversification with low single stock weightings and diversified country and sector allocations
UBS High Dividend Funds have typical equity risk characteristics and are designed for risk tolerant investors who are willing to bear the risk and volatility of equity investments
Local currency risks are largely hedged versus CHF.
The strategy is based on a quantitative model.

Key benefits
Easy access to stocks from across the globe that offer high dividend yields.
The focus on high quality stocks aims to exclude companies that do not pay sustainable dividends.
Investors can profit from a portfolio that seeks optimal diversification - low single stock weights and broad country and sector allocations.
Investors can largely avoid the impact from fluctuations of the local investment currencies versus USD

Risks
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).

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.
