When selecting stocks on the market, we prioritise companies with the best prospects of growth, namely targeting the individual stocks best-placed for success in comparison to the industry competition. This is part of our long-term investment strategy to compensate for market volatility. Our portfolio also includes scope for our Franger fund manager to include stocks which are undervalued by the market and thus promise high dividend yields, while our stock investments are always underpinned by wide-ranging, cross-industry diversification, in order to help disperse risk.
In the course of fine-tuning our investment strategy, we have compiled a comprehensive bond portfolio and targeted investments allow us to capitalise on opportunities for gains on international bond markets. Our main goal when investing is to ensure assets are preserved and minimise material risks – we see no better way to ensure long-term success. We invest in both corporate and government bonds and cover a range of currencies. We also provide innovative financing solutions for both young and established companies alike; both with and without direct equity participation.
With maturities of up to six months, derivatives investments are short-term in nature and leverage the volatility of global markets to earn appealing returns, even in otherwise sideways-bound markets. Again, our main focus here is on maximising market and investment diversification and exploiting options on shares above all. Our investments centre on call and put options, which can achieve significant gains in widely fluctuating markets, while the risk remains manageable.
