The Investment Compartment’s investment objective is to achieve competitive returns over the medium- to long-term, by investing assets in a balanced manner in a diversified portfolio consisting primarily from corporate and government bonds and secondarily from equities, T-Bills and deposits both in European and other international markets. Returns come from added value and capital gains as well as from income in the form of dividends, coupons and interest. The mutual fund may acquire exposure to a foreign currency in order to improve the expected return.
Based on the average valuation of assets per calendar quarter, the percentage of Investment Compartment assets invested in bonds, equities, deposits, T-Bills and other money market instruments must be within the following ranges:
Bonds : from 20% to 90%
Equities : from 0% to 50%
Deposits, T-Bills and other money
market instruments : from 10% to 80%
