Investment concept

Lupus alpha Sustainable Return: Risk-conscious and responsible investing

Generating target returns is severely challenged by the expansive monetary policy of the ECB and Fed. Traditional equity investments might offer some relief in this regard, but might be accompanied by untenable risks.

The strategy of the Lupus alpha Sustainable Return addresses that point. It allows risk-conscious investors to participate in the return potential of global stock and volatility markets - while actively managing portfolio risks and considering a broad range of ESG criteria. For doing so, the fund is using exchange-traded stocks andderivatives on global stock indices (especially futures and options). High quality, liquid bonds serve as a basis for this strategy.

The equity exposure is managed actively by the responsible portfolio managers. This enables global allocations without taking the "full" risk of the respective markets. The equity sensitivity of the portfolio ranges between 0% and 65% and is set regularly based on analyses of the market, of the volatility structure, and of the distance to the minimum value constraint. Being globally oriented, the portfolio does not only offer attractive return potentials, but also significant diversification benefits.

When participating in volatility markets, Lupus alpha relies on its long-standing experience with volatility strategies. 

The strategy is augmented by managing a minimum value constraint of 90%. This prevents larger losses (>10% of invested capital) with a high level of confidence.10  At the same time, the minimum value constraint allows the portfolio management to take on enough risks to generate or outperform its target return instead of being forced to prematurely reduce its risk exposure.

Investment objective

The objective of the fund is to participate in the attractive volatility and stock markets while considering a broad range of ESG criteria. Active management of portfolio risks intents to limit calendar year losses due to negative market environments to -10%.

Chances:

  • Participation in global stock markets with reduced risks – without compromising sustainability.
  • Attractive return contribution using global volatility markets
  • Smaller drawdowns compared to common stock.
  • Attractive performance even in sideways moving markets.

Risks:

  • Counterparty default risk: If counterparties and issuers do not fulfill or only partially fulfill their contractual payment obligations, this can result in losses for the fund. Even when securities are carefully selected, losses caused by the financial collapse of issuers cannot be ruled out.
  • Concentration risk: If investment is concentrated on particular assets or markets, the fund becomes particularly heavily dependent on the performance of these assets or markets.
  • Risks connected with derivatives transactions: Changes in the price of the underlying asset can devalue a derivative. If derivatives are used as part of the investment strategy, the Derivatives might have leverage effects that impact the fund more strongly than the underlying asset. When selling derivatives, there is the risk that the fund will suffer an indefinite loss amount.
  • Operational risk: The fund can become the victim of fraud, criminal acts or errors by company employees or external third parties. Finally, management of the fund can be negatively impacted by external events such as fires, natural disasters or similar.

  • Liquidity risk: If securities are traded in a relatively narrow market segment, it can be difficult to resell them in situations where there is insufficient liquidity.
  • 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. The performance fee is a performance-related remuneration depending on the performance or the achievement of specific objectives such as a better performance compared to a benchmark. The costs may also be levied if a pre-defined minimum performance has been achieved.
  7. Intern Ratings.
  8. Distributing Funds do not reinvest the generated income, they pay income to the invest
  9. The hurdle rate means a specific minimum interest and/or profit threshold a Fund has to achieve in order to allow the investment company to participate in the Fund's profit
  10. 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.
  11. Performance fees of investment companies are frequently bound by a high watermark - the all-time high of the Fund. This means that a commission entitlement arises only if that mark has been exceeded.
