Eurizon Fund -
Equity Circular Economy
A global equity investment focused on the circular transition
We believe the circular economy could act as a driver for more sustainable, smart, and inclusive growth. Eurizon Fund - Equity Circular Economy offers a new opportunity to invest in the best-structured companies that are on a transformation path, aiming to achieve more stable profits and cash flows, and stronger customer loyalty. Companies are selected through a bottom-up process that identifies companies with standardised metrics, paying particular attention to a proprietary circularity score, free cash flow yield, and the internal ESG score. The objective is to outperform the benchmark, namely the 100% MSCI World index (EUR). The fund is actively managed, and the benchmark is used for measuring performance and calculating performance fee*.
SFDR: The Fund promotes, among other characteristics, environmental or social characteristics as per Article 8 as per Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector (“SFDR”).
The advantages of investing in the best-structured, leading companies in the circular transition
Companies that have a good level of circularity and operate in the sectors most exposed to linear risks have a better risk profile and a competitive edge over peers, thanks to their ability to anticipate market trends.
Leading circular economy companies are expected to enjoy more stable earnings and cash flows in the medium-long term, in reward for the short-term investments required to make the transition to a circular model.
These companies are able to strengthen customer loyalty by offering services that complement and replace products.
The fund uses a bottom-up approach to analyse and select companies using standardised metrics and proprietary indicators, such as a circularity score, free cash flow yield (FCFY), and ESG risk estimation.
Companies are classified into four distinct categories depending on their role in the transition to a circular economy (“leading the circular transition”, “facilitators”, “suppliers”, “other companies”). Within each category ("Circular Transition", "Facilitators", "Suppliers"), each company is inserted in a group ("Cluster") with a score from 1 to 5 based on the quality of its metrics in terms of circular transition, ESG risk management, and Free Cash Flow Yield estimation.
Some companies may be inserted in more than one category, depending on their characteristics.
Main Risks of the sub-fund
The risk indicator assumes you keep the product for 4 years.
The summary risk indicator is a guide to the level of risk of this product compared to other products. It shows how likely it is that the product will lose money because of movements in the markets or because we are not able to pay you. We have classified this product as 4 out of 7, which is a medium risk class. This rates the potential losses from future performance at a medium level, and poor market conditions could impact the capacity of Eurizon Capital S.A. to pay you. This fund does not offer any form of capital protection against future negative market conditions and, as a consequence, you may lose part of or the entire amount originally invested. If the fund is not able to pay you out what is due, you may lose your entire investment.
