High-conviction management : “Special Situations”

Created in May 2000, Richelieu Pragma Europe was one of the first funds on the market to use an active management method combining the theme of “value” with that of financial transactions. The portfolio, focused since 1 February 2010 on European Union equities, is now open to all “special situations” in Europe, based on five themes: takeover bid targets, valuation anomalies, cyclical downturns, strategic restructuring and balance sheet optimisation, with stock market prices not (or not adequately) integrating these opportunities. Always based on independent stock picking from the main equity indices, this high-conviction fund is managed by David Autin and Alexandre Hezez.

The historical data used to calculate this benchmark may not be a reliable indicator of the UCITS’ future risk profile. The risk category associated with this UCITS is not guaranteed and may change over time. The weakest category does not mean a “risk-free” investment. The UCITS’ capital is not guaranteed.

Low risk,
potentially lower

The above benchmark reflects the UCITS’ volatility over five years based on its main exposure to European Union equity markets. It is calculated based on the UCITS’ historical returns and, in the event of insufficient historical data, based on the returns of its reference benchmark.
Major risks that have not been sufficiently taken into account by the benchmark: None
