The PARworld Dynamic Equity Strategy Fund aims to benefit from the growth potential of equity markets. The risk scaling approach we apply helps to manage the level of risk assumed irrespective of current market turbulence and fragility. By applying very distinctive risk/return profiles for different market conditions, increasing equity market risks can be avoided ahead of time, while still identifying and tapping into market opportunities at an early stage.

The structure with ETFs has the following advantages over direct-investing funds: By investing in a small number of existing investment funds with large amounts of fund assets and broad diversification, the investment policy can be implemented in a more cost-efficient manner than would be possible with direct investments.
Possible applications – benefits for high-net-worth private clients
The PARworld Dynamic Equity Strategy Fund is suitable as a core investment for high-net-worth private clients. Thanks to an effective diversified investment policy across various equity markets (based on the MSCI World) and actively managed tactical asset allocation, the fund represents a comprehensive solution or a core solution for implementing the foreign equities asset class.
The fund’s benchmark, with 70% MSCI World and 30% CHF liquidity, has been structured in such a way that the asset class can be allocated to the funds up to the specified maximum amount (upper range for overweighting the foreign equities asset class).
This makes the fund a flexible solution with above-average performance expectations. The collective investment instrument provides fund investors with access to an innovative institutional approach to asset management. The risk management model ensures the best risk/return profile throughout the various market conditions (market regimes), provides conceptual protection against severe fluctuations and absorbs major market setbacks without dampening upside potential.
