ODDO BHF Polaris Moderate: Stay on course with a moderate approach
The investment objective is to avoid major setbacks due to price fluctuations and to generate an additional return to a bond investment, while taking into account environmental, social issues and corporate governance (ESG) criteria.
The fund is backed by a stable, well-experienced, and dedicated management team with a long-term investment approach. This team follows an investment process that selects stocks and bonds of high-quality companies. Preference is given to companies that can stay on course through all phases of the economic cycle and benefit from secular trends such as digitalization, automation of the economy and Artificial Intelligence, new consumer and work trend, ageing population, and rising income in emerging middle class. In the selection process, the portfolio management team strives to detect companies that have significant competitive advantages, healthy balance sheets, and able to generate sufficient cash flow to self-finance their growth. Portfolio managers also pay close attention to the valuation of the companies to limit excessive valuation risks and try to find potentially attractive entry points.
