Investment Process for the Mixed Funds

  • Fundamental approach both for Equities and Fixed Income.
  • Each Fund has a range of risk exposure.
  • Equity investment is weighted upon the fundamental discount. A Normal distribution is traced, whose average corresponds to the asset’s fundamental value and its standard deviation reflects the valuation variability. The asset’s market price determines the probability that the asset is considered as “cheap”, and the exposure to Equity is based on that probability.
  • The relation among the short, medium and long term interest rates with the inflation rates determines the Fixed Income selection.
  • Other important criteria in Fixed Income assets are:
    • The rating and solvency of the issuer (company, the State) and the issue.
    • The bond’s maturity.
    • The portfolio’s average duration.
  • How is the percentage of Equity exposure managed in the Mixed Funds?

Example 1:

  • Probability that the stock market was undervalued: 99.9%.
  • If the Mixed Fund A can invest in Equity a maximum of 30%, the managers from GVC Gaesco will use as a reference to take positions, an investment based in Equity of:

30% * 99,9% = 29,97%

Exemple 2:

  • Probability that the stock market was undervalued: 70%.
  • If the Mixed Fund A can invest in Equity a maximum of 30%, the managers from GVC Gaesco will use as a reference to take positions, an investment based in Equity of:

30% * 70% = 21%
