Overview  
Category profile
UBS Small & Mid Cap Funds offer investors the opportunity to diversify into small and medium-sized companies and to limit the high stock-specific risk associated with direct investments in this asset category. These funds leverage UBS's experience and strong country knowledge: the investment in small and medium-sized companies is made on the basis of extensive bottom-up research, which then feeds into the active management of the portfolio.

Fund description
Actively managed equity portfolio investing in European small-cap companies.
The fund invests in equities of smaller sized companies domiciled or chiefly active in Europe.
When selecting stocks, the portfolio management team focuses on companies' flexibility and their ability to innovate.
The fund is diversified across various countries and sectors.
The exchange rate risk between EUR and USD is largely hedged.

Key benefits
The funds taps into the knowledge of proven specialists in European small-cap companies.
The fund managers can also tap into the knowledge and experience of a network of equity analysts around the globe.
UBS's proprietary fundamental valuation approach enables the most attractive European small-cap companies to be consistently identified.
Investors benefit from a global investment platform of UBS Asset Management.

Risks
UBS Small & Mid Cap 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. Focusing intentionally on small cap equities may entail additional risks. 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).
