ISIN no.:  LU0868495002
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 selected US companies that are expected to deliver above market average total yields. Total Yield is the sum of yields from dividend distributions and from company profits returned to shareholders via share buybacks.
Focus on quality factors with the aim to exclude low quality stocks.
The portfolio is well diversified with low single stock weights and broad sector allocation.
UBS Total Yield Equity Funds have typical equity risk characteristics. Total yield must not be confused with total return.
The exchange rate risk between USD and EUR is largely hedged.

Key benefits
Easy access to US stocks that offer high total yields which sums up yields from dividends and share buybacks.
Investors can profit from a portfolio that seeks optimal diversification - low single stock weights and a broad sector allocation.
Experienced investment team with a solid track record in running both US equity and equity yield strategies.

UBS Country & Regional 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 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 distributing (-dist) share classes of this fund intend to distribute capital as well as income (e.g. from dividends). Investors in some jurisdictions may incur a higher rate of tax on distributed capital than on any capital gains which are realised on disposal of fund shares. Some investors may therefore choose to invest in the accumulating (-acc) instead of the distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors may be taxed at a later point in time on income and capital arising on accumulating (-acc) share classes compared to distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors should seek their own tax advice. Total yield must not be confused with total return.

Indicative current total yield 1)
1)  This figure is indicative and gross of flat fee. The indicative current total yield is the sum of yields from dividend distributions and from company profits returned to shareholders via share buybacks. The dividend yield portion is based on the dividends of last year paid by the companies held in the fund. US withholding taxes paid by the fund are already deducted from this figure. The portion of yield derived from share buybacks is calculated as the net cash each company held in the fund used to repurchase shares (gross share buybacks minus share issuance) based on the most recent annual financial statement. This net cash is divided by the market capitalization from the previous month end resulting in the share buyback yield. Adding the dividend yield results in the total yield. The final total yield can deviate significantly from the indicative current total yield due to changes in company earnings, dividends, share buybacks, stock prices etc. In accumulating share classes, the total yield, net of fund fees, will be accumulated. In distributing share classes, the total yield, net of fund fees, will be distributed.
