UBS Equity Fund – Tech Opportunity USD

  • INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

    The fund invests selectively worldwide, mainly in equities and other equity shares of technology companies.

    STRUCTURE

    The focus lies on companies benefiting more than others from the development, processing, services and distribution of technology products or technology improvements and advances.

    The term “technology” refers to the traditional areas of information technology, such as electronic devices and application programs (hardware and software) and the associated services, but could also include specialised fields and technologies, including internet retail/services, telecommunications/cable and media.

    MANAGEMENT

    Working on the basis of well-grounded analyses by UBS investment specialists worldwide, the fund manager combines carefully selected equities of various companies from various countries and segments of the sector with the objective of exploiting interesting earnings opportunities while keeping the level of risk under control.

    In principle, investors may ask the Management Company to redeem their units on any business day in Luxembourg.

    Income of this share class is reinvested.
