Investment concept

Lupus alpha Equity Protect: Risk-conscious investing


Anyone who wants to generate target returns faces major challenges from the expansive monetary policy of the ECB and the Fed. Classic equity investments can help with this problem, but for many investors they are not feasible with acceptable risks. This is where the Lupus alpha Equity Protect strategy comes in. It enables risk-conscious investors to participate in the earnings opportunities of the global equity  markets - while actively managing the risk. To this end, the fund uses equities (more than 50% of the fund assets) as well as exchange-listed derivatives on global equities and equity indices (especially futures and options). A portfolio of liquid bonds (approx. 35% of fund assets) with high credit ratings forms the basis for this. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards are also taken into account when implementing the strategy. The fund's equity exposure is globally oriented and is determined on a discretionary basis by the responsible portfolio managers. The equity sensitivity of the portfolio is intended to be around 100% on average and is regularly adjusted following analyses of the market environment, volatility structure and the distance to the lower value limit8. The global orientation of the portfolio not only opens up attractive return opportunities for investors in the Lupus alpha Equity Protect, but also significant diversification benefits. The strategy is complemented by the management of a value floor8 of 75%. This avoids larger losses (>25% of the capital invested) with the greatest possible confidence. At the same time, the limit gives the portfolio management the necessary risk leeway to be able to achieve or exceed its target return instead of having to reduce risk at an early stage.

Investment objective

The objective of the fund is to participate in the earnings opportunities of the global equity markets and in this way to outperform the benchmark index (MSCI World 100% Hedged to EUR Net Total Return Index) over the long term. By actively managing the risk, the maximum calendar-year loss8 in the event of negative market development is to be limited to -25%.

OPPORTUNITIES:

  • Risk-reduced participation in the global equity markets with the inclusion of sustainability criteria
  • Attractive performance contribution through the use of global volatility markets
  • Usually lower losses compared to equities
  • Attractive returns even when equity markets move sideways

RISKS:

  • Default risks: If counterparties fail to meet contractual payment obligations or only partially meet them, losses may occur due to asset forfeiture by issuers
  • Concentration risks: Due to the concentration of the investment assets on a few markets or assets, the fund is particularly dependent on these few markets/assets.
  • Risk associated with derivative transactions: Derivative transactions for hedging purposes reduce the overall risk of the fund, but may reduce the return opportunities. If transactions are carried out with derivatives as part of the investment strategy, the Fund's risk of loss may increase, at least temporarily. 
  • Operational risks: The Fund may be the victim of fraud, criminal acts or errors by employees of the Company or external third parties. Finally, its management may be adversely affected by external events such as fires, natural disasters and the like.
  • Liquidity risks: During certain phases, such as periods of major market turmoil, there may be difficulties in liquidating asset positions at the desired time or price.
  • Market risk: The performance of financial products depends on the development of the capital markets.

  1. Source: Lupus alpha; gross performance (BVI method): The gross performance considers all costs incurred at Fund level (e. g. management fee) and assumes reinvestment of any distributions. Costs incurred at customer level such as sales charge and securities account costs are not included. Unless otherwise specified, all indicated performance data show the gross performance. Please note: Past performance is not a reliable indicator the future performance.
  2. Source: Lupus alpha; the net performance assumes a model calculation based on an invested amount of EUR 1,000, the maximum sales charge and a redemption charge (see master data). It does not include individual costs of the investor, such as a securities account fee. (To this effect, please refer to the price list of your securities account provider.) Please note: Past performance is not a reliable indicator for future performance.
  3. Volatility is the range of variation of a security price or index around its mean value over a fixed period of time. A security is regarded as volatile if its price fluctuates heavily. The tracking error describes the standard deviation (volatility) between the Fund's performance and the performance of the benchmark index. The higher the tracking error, the more the performance of the Fund deviates from the performance of the benchmark index. The investment ratio means the part of the Fund that is not invested in cash. Delta: measures the sensitivity of the convertible bond price on changes to the underlying equity price. A delta of 0,4 means that the price of the convertible rises 4% if the underlying equity price rises 10%. Current yield is a bond's annual return based on its annual coupon payments and current price (as opposed to its original price or face). The formula for current yield is a bond's annual coupons divided by its current price. Interest rate sensitivity is a measure of how much the price of a fixed-income asset will fluctuate as a result of changes in the interest rate environment.
  4. The sales charge is the difference between the sales price and the unit value. The sales charge varies depending on the type of the Fund and the distribution channel and usually covers the advisory and distribution costs. The Distributor will demand the sales charge at its own discretion.
  5. The management fee is the fee for managing the Fund and taken from the Fund's assets; it is paid to Lupus alpha for the management and administration of the Fund
  6. Distributing Funds do not reinvest the generated income, they pay out the income to the invest
  7. Internal Ratings
  8. Loss protection, capital preservation or conformity with the minimum value constraint cannot be guaranteed or warranted at any point in time. Buying within the calendar year might result in increased risks.
