The asset manager for a changing world

Parvest Equity Russia

  • The fund invests at least 75% of its assets in equities and/or equity equivalent securities issued by companies that have their registered offices or conduct the majority of their business activities in Russia.
  • The fund may invest in derivatives (up to 100%). These types of investments can involve material additional risks, for example counterparty default risk or insolvency, volatility risk, liquidity risk, leverage risk and valuation risk, and may expose the fund to significant losses.
  • The fund has significant exposure to emerging markets and a single country (Russia) and is likely to be subject to a greater concentration risk and higher volatility than a more diversified investment. Emerging markets may have higher legal, regulatory and political risk.
  • The management company may at its discretion pay dividends out of the capital of the fund. Payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment of dividends out of the fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.

  • The team also manages a Russian Opportunities strategy, which is more concentrated and may contain less liquid stocks among mid and small caps with significant exposure to Russia and former Soviet Union Republics.
