3 Years

The fund is a response to the current low interest rate environment by providing exposure to international fixed income and equity markets combining macroeconomic analysis with an approach to corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) opportunities and risks of companies. It seeks to provide a higher net expense return than the reference index.

A selection of promising themes to contribute to global growth

Dorval Global Convictions Patrimoine can drive its exposure to equity markets up to 30% and/or its investment in interest rate markets across all geographical areas, aiming to benefit from the dynamism of all potential areas of growth areas. The management team identifies the themes deemed to be promising relevant to each phase of the cycle and rotates these schemes according to market trends.

Active and agile management, framed by a rigorous socially responsible investment policy

Portfolio construction and management combine financial and extra financial approaches and are based on:

  1. Identification of investment themes considered to have higher potential, i.e. in line with the major trends and the economic and financial context
  2. A definition of the level of risk for the portfolio
  3. A construction of equally weighted equity and bonds baskets within the investment themes, combining financial and extra financial analyses

The balance of the portfolio may be invested in monetary instruments. In the event of a significant risk in the financial markets, money market instruments may represent 100% of the assets.

Information concerning the methodology and data relating to extra-financial analysis are available in the SRI policy and the Code of transparency of Dorval Asset Management available here.

An active hedging and risk management policy for an asset risk profile

In order to protect the portfolio, the performance trajectory is driven by an active hedging and risk management policy, in particular to 3 levers:

  • The level of exposure to risky assets, regularly reviewed by the Asset Allocation Committee, according to the central scenario;
  • The degree of diversification by asset class, geographical and thematic areas, the specific risk is limited to 1% of the fund's assets for each equity:
  • The use of asymmetric hedging in a wide universe, according to alternative scenarios and with vigilance regarding their costs (safe haven assets, futures and index options).


*Risk and Performance Indicator: 1 is a low risk but not risk free. 7 is the highest risk. With a lower risk, a potentially lower yield, conversely a higher risk, a potentially higher yield.

* Benchmark index is the composite index: 80% Bloomberg EU Govt 0-5 Year TR and 20% MSCI World Equal Weighted Local Index net total return (since 09/30/2020).

Alpha: outperformance of a fund relative to its reference index, expressed as a percentage. This is an indicator of the fund manager's ability to create value, excluding the market effect. The higher the alpha, the better the fund's performance relative to that of its reference index.

Beta: measurement of a fund's sensitivity to market movements (represented by its reference index). A beta of more than 1 indicates that the fund amplifies both upward and downward movements in its reference market. By contrast, a beta of less than 1 means that the fund tends to react less than its reference market.

Recovery period: time expressed in days that the fund takes to exceed the highest net asset value during the period indicated.

Exposure as a percentage of net assets: a fund's overall exposure takes into account the sum of its physical positions and off-balance sheet positions. As opposed to so-called "physical" positions (which in accounting terms are entered under the schedule of investments), off-balance sheet positions encompass positions taken on both financial futures and derivatives. Examples of derivatives include futures contracts, swaps and option contracts. A maximum off-balance sheet exposure limit is defined in the prospectus.

Flexible fund: financial product that varies its allocation between asset classes over time to continually adapt to new market configurations. In the case of Dorval Convictions PEA, the allocation spans equities and fixed income products.

Fixed-income mutual fund: fund invested in bond and currency products

ETF: Exchange Traded Funds (or trackers) are mutual funds that replicate the performance of an index. They are distinctive in that they are continually traded and can be bought and sold in the same way as equities. Dorval Global Convictions only invests in equity index ETFs.

Gain frequency: calculated based on the history of the fund since its inception, showing the ratio of the number of positive observations to the total number of observations over the period.

Future: a future is a contract that allows an investor to buy or sell a certain quantity of a product (in this case international equities) on a fixed date (the delivery date) at a price set when the contract is made.

Maximum recorded gain: all-time maximum gain recorded by the fund.

Maximum recorded loss: all-time maximum loss recorded by the fund.

Sharpe ratio: indicator of a product's outperformance relative to a risk-free rate, taking into account the risk taken (volatility of the product). The higher this is, the better the fund.

Volatility: amplitude in the variation of a share, fund, market or index over a given period. High volatility means that the price of the share varies significantly and therefore that the risk associated with the share is high.

What is the point of investing in the asset management of this fund?

“This innovative and highly diversified approach is built on baskets of stocks, and aims to grow investors’ savings at a pace in line with potential sustainable gains in the world economy. Additionally, the team focuses particularly on risk management across various levels: extent of exposure to high-risk assets, strong portfolio diversification, strict restrictions on company-specific risks, asymmetrical hedging strategies and screening for environmental, social and governance criteria (ESG).

Dorval Global Convictions Patrimoine is a multi-asset fund that carries the SRI accreditation and seeks to address today’s new environmental and social challenges. The equity markets deliver the fund’s main performance driver – with net international stock-market exposure of up to 30% – while the fund also invests on the fixed-income markets in a range of 0 to 100% with sensitivity of between -5 and +8, in addition to currencies, which can provide exposure of 20% at most.”

How do you approach ESG challenges?

"In our view, ESG is both a source of opportunities and a method to monitor risks. We draw on our proprietary scoring system to eliminate companies with the weakest scores and/or that have been subject to controversies, with a view to ascertaining our international investment universe. We then focus on the names that can best address or adapt to today’s environmental and social challenges on the back of their high-quality governance (50% of the score). Lastly, we pursue our engagement approach with these companies by voting for all resolutions that seek to enhance transparency and promote sustainable development practices."
