Carmignac announces the registration of Carmignac Portfolio Patrimoine Europe* to expand its product offer for long-term savers. The fund is underpinned by the same non-benchmarked, flexible, multi-asset investment philosophy that is a hallmark of the Patrimoine offer, aiming to generate long-term performance in a wide variety of investment environments and serve as a useful diversification tool for investors.
Carmignac Portfolio Patrimoine Europe has at least half of its assets invested in fixed income, while the net equity exposure can vary from 0% to 50%. The strategy’s flexible nature allows the Fund Managers to pursue a conviction-driven investment strategy in order to generate long-term positive returns while mitigating downside risks. The fund has the ability to be net short duration and benefit from the current rising rates environment thanks to a wide modified duration range from -4 to +10. Moreover, it takes on limited currency risks with exposure to non-European currencies limited to 20%.
The Fund stands out by offering a focused investment universe of European equities and fixed income assets, and by adopting a rigorous, bottom-up approach alongside an active equity and interest rate strategy. Carmignac Portfolio Patrimoine Europe will be co-managed by Mark Denham, Head of European Equities, and manager of the Carmignac Portfolio Grande Europe and Keith Ney, Fund Manager of the fixed income flagship Carmignac Sécurité.
Edouard Carmignac, as CIO of Carmignac, said: “With the addition of Carmignac Portfolio Patrimoine Europe, we are pleased to expand our range of Patrimoine solutions in order to meet our clients’ long-term savings needs. I am confident that Keith and Mark, having already demonstrated their ample abilities and expertise, will provide the ideal team for the task”
