The idea is to detect the most promising asset classes and allocate them optimally in order to capture the many sources of added value within a responsible and dynamic approach.
A discretionary asset allocation combining strategic and tactical management to enhance the portfolio’s returns within a pre-determined risk framework.
The allocation managers select suitable investment vehicles for each asset class. Directly held shares in the form of delegation to managers who are experts in equities and/or bonds and/or open-ended internal or external mutual funds/ETFs, and in the derivatives markets.
Several sources of added value, including dynamic allocation between the various asset classes authorised, including non-benchmarked ones when there is a benchmark, a selection of vehicles, and relative performance of selected investment vehicles.
Dynamic management, certified ISR (SRI), in international equities around a target allocation.
An open-architecture approach as part of optimum multi-management of assets.
A triad of skills based on cooperation between managers, fundamental research analysts and quantitative analysts.
Cutting-edge research to identify and calibrate optimum performance drivers, based on market contexts.
The management team’s seniority (25 years on average) and its long-standing market and risk-management know-how.
Innovative and proprietary tools for management, decision-making, portfolio construction and rigorous budgeting of risks.
