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 discussions involving the fund management team and the management of targeted companies on location form 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.
