The investment universe is made up of announced mergers either in Europe or North America. Filters in terms of capitalization and liquidity are applied.The sub-funds objective is to achieve a performance un-correlated to equity markets with a volatility level below 5. The objective of the management team is to obtain an absolute performance by using different arbitrage strategies, mainly alternatives described below. The performance of the sub-fund is not assessed in relation to the evolution of a benchmark. However, the performance may be compared ex-post to the yearly capitalized EONIA for units quoted in Euro.The sub-funds objective is to implement arbitrage strategies by using an approach based on three main principles: a fundamental analysis linked to a statistical-probabilistic analysis and an optimization of the portfolios allocation based on the risk/reward of each position.
