Investible Universe

The universe of funds on the market is subdivided into three major macro-categories: Passive Funds or Benchmark-driven, Total Return Funds, Absolute Return Funds.

Passive funds

Fund Manager discretionary decisions are minimal and rare, as a consequence portfolio flexibility is negligible. Investment in this type of products gives access to a specific market leaving the Fund manager a negligible and in most cases none discretion in allocating the investment. ETFs and Fund at benchmark are part of this category

Total Return funds

Partial Management Delegation. Products with a specific market geography and a variable exposure level depending on the market context. The goal of these strategies is to provide a higher risk-adjusted return than the reference market

Absolute Return funds

The return of this kind of funds does not depend on the performance of a specific market. Portfolio flexibility and management techniques allow the fund manager to modulate risk and achieve positive returns even in adverse market phases
