The Value Strategy
Value strategies have become popular above all through star investor Warren Buffett. The long-term performance advantage of value stocks over growth stocks is mainly due to the fact that most market participants are expecting current profit growth rates to continue, being too optimistic about the future, while tending to underestimate the intrinsic value of companies. As a result, value stocks can often be bought below their fair value. The higher intrinsic value compared to the market value of a value company also offers some protection against exaggerated price erosion in times of crisis.
The fund regularly and systematically invests in a concentrated portfolio of value stocks with the strongest momentum from around 2000 individual stocks. Additional stocks may be selected on the basis of macroeconomic assessments, for example.
Derivative Instruments in Addition and as an Element of Risk Management
Systematic, rule-based trading in futures (exchange-traded forward transactions), primarily those on stock market volatility, complements the equity strategy on the one hand and is an element of risk management on the other. In calm market phases, the futures strategy can generate additional returns by skimming risk premiums. In stress markets, the strategy seeks to limit losses at the fund level. This is to be achieved by taking rule-based long positions on volatility.

Every investment involves risks. Fund prices may rise or fall. Performance data refer to the past.
Past performance is no reliable indicator for future results.
In particular, capital preservation cannot be guaranteed.
Investments in foreign currencies are subject to exchange rate fluctuations and currency risks, which means that the performance of such investments also depends on the volatility of the foreign currency, which can have a negative influence on the capital invested.
Futures Funds: Investments in futures funds can be very profitable, but they can also involve considerable risks that do not, or at least not to the same extent, occur with traditional investment categories and which can lead to a considerable loss, or at worst, the total loss of the investment. Therefore, investors must be prepared and able to accept a complete loss. When purchasing shares in futures funds, a longer-term holding period should be intended with the primary purpose of adding such funds to an existing diversified portfolio.
