Investment concept

Diversifying equity portfolios with European small and mid caps

Lupus alphaSustainable Smaller Pan European Champions invests in selected European small and mid caps, thus offering investors the opportunity to diversify their existing equity portfolios - without compromising sustainability. Adding small and mid caps to an equity portfolio can thus improve its returns and reduce its risk. This is primarily due to the interdependence of country- and company-specific influences, while large-cap stocks tend to be affected by global macroeconomic factors. As a result, small- and mid-cap strategies can make use of special regional issues as well as a company's individual temporary upswing in its specialised niche. In addition, the investment universe of small- to mid-cap European companies boasts not only more than ten years of exceptional performance but also significantly lower variation than European large-cap stocks. One of the reasons for this is the wide variety of more than 1,000 stocks, which enables portfolios to be spread widely across many sectors, unlike large-cap stocks.
As a rule, analysts do not cover the European small- and mid-cap market to the same extent as is customary for large-cap companies. The resulting information inefficiency creates opportunities to use comprehensive in-house research for unearthing promising stocks and exploiting their potential for a portfolio through active management, thus offering good prospects for successful stock-picking. This strategy enables investors to achieve excess returns from European small and mid caps while at the same time diversifying their existing equity portfolios.

We defined screening criteria in order to avoid investing into companies that do not meet our minimum standards e.g. with respect to the production of controversial weapons or compliance to UN Global Compact- These criteria envolve steadily and are reviewed continuously. Moreover, ESG criteria are integrated into the stock selection process and are part and parcel of our fundamental investing analysis. 

Investment objective

The fund's objective is to outperform the benchmark (STOXX® Europe TMI Small Return-Index) over the long term using targeted stock-selection.  For doing so, the fund focusses on companies that meet pre-determined minimum criteria with respect to environmental, ethical, social and governance considerations. The sector and/or country allocation of the benchmark index is only of secondary importance and serves information purposes.

Chances

  • Access to global convertible bonds and hence to a variety of different sources of return.
  • Convertible bonds offer the opportunity to participate in the upside potential of equities while providing the safety of a bond due to the asymmetric risk/return profile.
  • Active management allows investors to exploit opportunities and ensures stringent risk management.

 

Risks

  • Risk of price changes: Experience shows that equities are subject to sharp price fluctuations and thus the risk of price declines. These fluctuations are particularly impacted by the earnings development of the issuing company as well as sector trends and overall economic development.
  • Counterparty default risk: If counterparties and issuers do not fulfil or only partially fulfil 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.
  • 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. If counterparties do not fulfil or only partially fulfil 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.
  • Interest-rate risk: Changes in market interest rates can affect the prices of fixed-income securities. These fluctuations vary, however, depending on the term of the fixed-income securities.
  • Risks connected with derivatives transactions, particularly options: Changes in the price of the underlying asset can devalue an option. Options have leverage effects that impact the fund more strongly than the underlying asset. When selling options, there is the risk that the fund will suffer an indefinite loss amount.
  • Operational risks: 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.

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 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
  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.
