More about the fund

Our investment focus: Long/short multi-asset fund, investments in various asset classes

As a liquid alternatives sub-fund, MainFirst Contrarian Opportunities makes counter-cyclical investments in various asset classes, in particular equities, bonds and currencies. The portfolio managers focus primarily on derivatives and enter into both long and short positions in the asset classes specified. Positions in foreign currencies are opened mainly via FX forwards and futures. This allows the Contrarian Opportunities portfolio to offer broad diversification that ensures stabilisation during periods of stress. This makes the fund an attractive alternative to bond investments.

Our investment strategy: average excess return of three to four percent

By pursuing a market-neutral investment strategy, the fund is independent of medium-term developments on the equity and bond markets. The aim is to achieve an annual excess return (alpha) of three to four percent over the 3-month Euribor over a period of three to five years.
