Pure Capital - Independent asset management

Trend Following Strategy Fund - D Dati validi a 20/06/2024

Investment objective and policy

The objective of the sub-fund is to maximize the return on the investment on the international equity markets while minimizing the risk of the portfolio.

It will have a high level of diversification and may invest in all types of equities without any restrictions in terms of market capitalization, geographical zones and sectors.

The sub-fund will pursue a “trend following” strategy which consists of exploiting the directionality of the markets by identifying trends through in-depth price analysis. The objective is to take advantage of market developments in different asset classes and on different investment horizons through long and short exposures. In uptrend markets, the Investment Manager will mainly take positions into securities providing long exposures. In downtrend markets, the Investment Manager will protect the sub-fund by refining the portfolio structure (reducing the long exposure by investing into cash and cash equivalent instruments, as well as eligible inverse UCITS/UCIs such as but not limited to Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). The sub-fund is actively managed and with no reference to a benchmark.

The sub-fund may invest:

  • up to 90% of its net assets in equities (directly or indirectly);
  • up to 80% in shares or units of other UCIT/UCIs, potentially including eligible leveraged and inverse funds (incl. ETFs)

  • up to 20% in debt securities (directly or indirectly); high yield bonds up to 10%;
  • up to 20% in eligible instrument which underlying exposure is related to the commodity markets. This will be implemented exclusively through eligible exchange traded commodity securities (ETC);
  • under normal market circumstances, the sub-fund will maintain a clear majority of at least 55% of the investments in OCDE denominated currency securities;
  • in financial derivative instruments.

Investor profile

The sub-fund is available to all investors who want to participate in the opportunities offered by the international equity markets and are aware that the gearing (or leverage) of investments made in derivatives and the volatility of the prices of derivatives increases the risk of investments made in the shares of the sub-fund to a higher level than in the case of traditional funds investments.

The Summary Risk Indicator (SRI), in accordance with the Key Information Document (PRIIPS-KID), allows the level of risk of this product to be assessed in relation to others. It indicates the likelihood of losses in the event of market movements or the sub-fund's inability to pay you. This indicator ranks the risk on a scale of 1 to 7. A low score indicates lower risk but potentially lower return. A higher score will lead to higher risk but potentially higher return.

The level of risk indicated is not a guarantee and may change over time. It also assumes that you keep the product for 5 years. The risk may be significantly different if you sell the product at an early stage and you may get a lower return.

Main 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.
  • Credit risk. the sub-fund is invested in securities whose credit rating may deteriorate. Such an event would increase the risk an issuer may not be able to meet its commitments. If an issuer's creditworthiness declines, the value of the bonds or derivatives linked to this issuer may fall.
  • Liquidity risk. the sub-fund invests in markets that may be affected by a decrease in liquidity. These market conditions may have an impact on the prices at which the manager buys and sells positions.
  • Counterparty risk. the sub-fund may suffer losses if a counterparty defaults and is unable to meet its obligations, especially in the case of derivatives traded OTC.
  • Discretionary management risk. as the management strategy is based on expected changes in the various markets, there is a risk that the sub-fund might not be invested in the best-performing markets at all times.
  • Operational risk. it represents the risk of fault or an error within the different actors implicated in the management, evaluation and/or safekeeping of the assets of the sub-fund.
  • Risk impact of financial techniques. the use of complex products such as derivatives and structured products can lead to an amplification of the movements of the securities of the sub-fund.

Commodity. An asset class that includes physical assets of natural origin, used as raw materials in the production of goods. These include metals such as gold, silver, copper, etc. and agricultural raw materials from livestock or crops.
