Overview  
Category profile
The strategy of UBS European Growth and Income focuses on three European asset classes, Equities, Convertible bonds and High Yield bonds, targeting a one-third allocation to each. The fund is well diversified across the European Countries, and pursues a very active management across the three asset classes.

Fund description
The fund is focused on capturing growth and income opportunities predominantly from Europe.
It invests predominantly in European equities, high yield corporate bonds and convertible bonds.
Each asset class weighting is kept at approximately one third.
The exchange rate risk between EUR and USD is largely hedged.
This share class distributes a constant percentage share of the NAV, not a constant amount.
This share class is designed for investors who want to profit from performance opportunities on the financial markets and at the same time wish more stable distributions at a specific percentage level to cover recurring liquidity needs.
As the distributions are substantial, this share class is not designed for investors who want to build wealth. The latter may prefer the accumulating share class.
This share class must not be seen as an alternative to a savings account or fixed-interest paying investments.
The percentage distribution rate of this share class is unrelated to the interest or other income generated in the fund. The distribution is a percentage payment of the current amount of investment.
It is possible that the distributions result in an erosion of assets and a reduction of invested capital.
This share class may distribute capital as well as income. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. See risk section below.

Key benefits
Equities, high yield corporate bonds and convertible bonds offer a compelling combination of growth and income opportunities with favorable risk/return characteristics.
Diversification across each asset class at approximately one third reduces overall risk.
Actively managed by a dedicated team of experts who can draw upon UBS Asset Management's experienced European investment teams.

Risks
This fund value may fluctuate given its equity exposure and is also impacted by changes in interest rates due to its fixed income holdings. The fund focuses intentionally on European assets, which may entail additional risks and volatility. 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). The monthly 8%-mdist distributing share classes may distribute capital as well as income. It is possible that the distributions result in an erosion of assets and a reduction of invested capital. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. 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.
