Overview  
Category profile
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.

Fund description
Actively managed fund based on a concentrated equity portfolio that invests in selected European companies.
Fund aims to seek the best opportunities in the market based on fundamental, quantitative and qualitative information sources.
Market exposure may also deviate from that of the reference index to incorporate market views.
Additionally, the fund can use investment strategies which allow the management to take advantage of declining stock prices (short selling).
The exchange rate risk between EUR and USD is largely hedged.

Key benefits
Exposure to European equity markets with the opportunity to outperform the market via a concentrated portfolio of stocks.
Flexible and nimble approach of a focused boutique investment team that specialises in managing active funds.
Highly active and benchmark agnostic portfolio.
Ability to take full investment opportunities through the use of short positions.

Risks
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).
