MAIN RISKS & ADVANTAGES

ADVANTAGES

  • Losses and volatility are limited. Cash is prefered when the outlook for an asset class is negative.
  • Medium and long-term capital appreciation regardless of market conditions.
  • A high level of diversification at lower cost, through the use of trackers and/or funds dedicated to specific asset classes.
  • The systematic and quantitative nature of the decision-making process prevents the sheep-like behaviour commonly seen during the formation of speculative bubbles and market crashes.

RISKS

  • “Equity” risk: The price of an equity security may vary, sometimes due to factors that have nothing to do with the company’s intrinsic value. Equity prices may be affected by economic factors and market conditions, such as a general decrease in share prices or conditions that affect one or more specific issuers, such as changes in earnings forecasts.
  • Interest rate risk: An increase in interest rates may cause the value of the sub-fund’s bonds to decrease.
  • Credit risk: An issuer may be unable to meet its obligations. If an issuer’s solvency position deteriorates, the value of the issuer’s bonds or of derivative instruments that are linked to this issuer may decrease.
  • Counterparty risk: The sub-fund may suffer losses if a counterparty defaults and is unable to meet its obligations, particularly if the transaction with the counterparty involves over-the-counter derivatives.
  • Exchange rate risk: The risk that the exchange rate of a given currency may vary with respect to that of another currency over the near or medium term.
  • The risk of using certain financial techniques: The use of complex products, such as derivative contracts, may amplify changes in the price of the sub-fund’s securities.
  • The risk of investing in contingent convertibles (CoCo’s): CoCo’s expose investors to various risks, such as loss absorbency, price fluctuations, trigger risk and conversion risk.
  • Liquidity risk: The sub-fund invest in markets which may be adversely affected by a decrease in liquidity. These market conditions may affect the price at which the asset manager buys or sells a given security.
  • Discretionary management risk: Since the investment strategy is based on projected changes in the various markets, there is a risk that the sub-fund may not be invested in the best-performing markets at any one time.
  • Operational risk: The risk of an error or wrongdoing on the part of a party involved in the management, valuation and/or custody of the sub-fund’s assets.
