Pure Capital - Independent asset management

Pure Fixed Income Opportunities - RC A bond fund This information is valid at 24/11/2022

A flexible approach to bond investment.

“In an environment that has become a bit difficult for traditional bond investors, rigid and passive investment strategies are unsatisfactory. With this sub-fund, we have addressed the need to broaden the spectrum of potential sources of return and decorrelation within the bond universe, and to actively realign our portfolio with our outlook for market opportunities. Always with full awareness of the risks involved and a strong focus on diversification.”

* The Synthetic Risk and Reward Indicator (SRRI) ranks investment risk on a scale of 1 to 7. It is based on historical volatility data. A lower indicator score indicates a lower risk, and also a lower potential return. A higher indicator score indicates a higher risk, and also a higher potential return. A risk level of 1 does not mean that the investment is without risk. There is no guarantee that the risk level indicated will not change over time.

Important information for investors: 

The chart and returns shown above refer to past performance and do not constitute a reliable indicator for the future. This fund does not offer a capital guarantee. Before investing, you should always read the Key Investor Information Document (KIID) and the prospectus.

The change in net asset value and returns indicated are net of management fees, performance fees and any other fees and charges which, as indicated in the prospectus, are borne by the fund. They do not include any subscription fees that may be paid to the distributor, nor any annual custody fees that may be deducted by the custodian, nor any taxes for which the investor may be liable. The returns indicated are calculated in EUR and are based on the fund’s share price or Net Asset Value (NAV).


Investment policy and objective

This sub-fund’s objective is to maximise the return on investments in global bond and money markets.

The investment policy offers the broadest possible access to all available opportunities in fixed-income markets, with no restrictions as to type of financial instrument, maturity, credit rating or currency. 

The sub-fund's core strategy is to invest in a diversified portfolio of debt securities. The portfolio’s allocation between the various segments of the money and bond markets (or between the various types of mutual funds that invest in bond and money market instruments) may be significantly modified in accordance with macroeconomic and financial market fundamentals, while also taking quantitative analysis criteria into account. Asset allocations by geographic region, economic sector, credit rating and maturity may therefore change substantially.

More specifically, there are no limits to the allocations of fixed-rate, floating-rate, convertible or inflation-linked bonds, transferable debt securities, or government bonds and notes, including those of the emerging countries.

However, the investment manager may invest no more than 20% of the sub-fund’s assets in contingent convertible bonds, and no more than 70% in contingent convertible bonds and other hybrid financial and non-financial sector bonds.

Cash and cash equivalents may potentially account for up to 100% of the sub-fund’s net asset value.
