Active foundations, active overlay
The UBS Defensive Investment Fund is an actively managed multi-asset fund which invests in active funds, index funds and derivatives. Relative to the Balanced Investment Fund it has a greater allocation to income style assets.
Our key beliefs for managing the strategy are:
- Market inefficiencies can be exploited by analysing both fundamental valuation and market behaviour indicators;
- Teams generate ideas and individuals are accountable for implementation;
- Risk should only be taken where compensated.
The Fund aims to provide investors with a total return (after management costs) in excess of its Neutral Allocation, over rolling five year periods. Over the full investment cycle, this Neutral allocation displays performance characteristics of CPI plus 4.5%-6.5% per annum on average.
The Fund is best suited to investors who seek to enhance the returns from a diversified portfolio of income assets through a limited investment in growth and alternative assets.
