Protected, indexed & model-driven management strategies
Our structured capabilities consist of three distinct areas of expertise: protected investment, indexed investment and model-driven management.
Protected investment: campaign funds, permanent protection, target date solutions
With in-depth expertise of a full range of portfolio management techniques, our Paris-based experts are hugely innovative and offer a wide range of guaranteed and protected capital products. These capital protection opportunities are offered for all asset classes, and may be permanent or product term-linked.
The indexed funds offer a wide variety of investment opportunities to investors looking to diversify their portfolio by region, sector or asset class, and those making tactical trades to benefit from a rising market configuration.
Exchange-traded fund range
Our ETF range tracks benchmark indices such as those developed by Dow Jones, FTSE, Standard and Poor’s and Russell. We select high-quality underlying assets to ensure the highest level of precision in tracking the performance of selected indices.
Smart Beta solutions
Our Smart Beta solutions are managed by our Paris-based Model-Driven Global Quant team. The team manages a range of quantitative strategies that are all fully systematic and designed to deliver long-term outperformance of what we believe are inefficient market capitalisation-based indices. Our capabilities consist of various strategies (e.g. risk-based or multi factor-based investments) with a variety of risk-return targets to match the differing needs of our investors.
We offer two areas of expertise in multi-asset diversified funds: absolute performance funds and flexible funds. Our absolute performance funds are designed to deliver performance regardless of the market environment, with no benchmarking or allocation constraints. What sets us apart so distinctively is our investment philosophy and our emphasis on a broad diversity of assets and styles. The result is a lower concentration of risk in terms both of assets and strategy. Our flexible funds are designed to track trends by adapting exposure to market dynamics. We offer global exposure and model the portfolio contribution made by each asset on the basis of a constant criterion: volatility.
The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay.
