More about the fund
Our investment focus: successful German SMEs
As a German equity fund, MainFirst Germany Fund invests primarily in fast-growing, undervalued German SMEs. These hidden champions have a few features in common: solid balance sheets, high levels of profitability and the potential for long-term earnings growth. It is often the case that the management board holds a stake in the company or established it itself. This can include both companies with large market capitalisation and small or mid-cap companies.
Our investment strategy: flexible blend/fundamental for long-term returns
The active selection process starts with an in-depth analysis of potential targets. For fund manager Olgerd Eichler and his team, it is a qualitative assessment of the company’s management, in addition to the quantitative findings of the fundamental analysis, that plays the decisive role in the stock selection process. Intensive on-site discussions between the fund management team and the management of targeted companies are part of the selection strategy. This focused, bottom-up analysis is the only way to tap into special long-term return potential for investors. Based on this knowledge, we pick suitable stocks and buy them at affordable prices. The result of this active selection process is a concentrated, benchmark-unaware portfolio of around 40 stocks.
We deliberately opt for a long-term investment horizon in order to benefit from revaluations and growth potential.
